The Playhouse Theatre is going back to the 80's.

From the era that brought the world the Rubik's Cube, Max Headroom and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes the “totally awesome” Playhouse Theatre musical “Back to the 80s”.

The production is set in the style of movies such as Back To The Future, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, The Karate Kid and The Wedding Singer.

“Back to the 80's” hits the Playhouse stage in July with a cast of over 40 talented kids ages ranging from 10 to 18 years old.

Audience members can expect a fun filled show full of all the classic songs from the 80s including “Walking on Sunshine”, “Video Killed The Radio Star”, “Material Girl” and “Wake Me Up Before you Go Go”.

They’ll join the graduating class of William Ocean High School as they live through their final senior year – as they experience the fun, the heartbreak, the loves and the loneliness of growing up…. all set to the biggest hits of the 80s.

Set in the USA, “Back To The 80's” tells the story of the senior class of William Ocean High School that graduated in the 1980s, as remembered and seen through the eyes of Corey Palmer, who is now 30-something.

It is directed by Rebecca Hutchins, with Assistant Director Brayden Rewald.

Youth Theatre Director Kyle Schneider said it would be a fun show.

“The team have been working hard around the clock to get this show on the boards,” Kyle said

“It’s so brilliant to have such a great team of young people to help mentor and guide these children. The children are having an absolute blast and are all excited to tease their hair and put some neon on!”

“Back to the 80’s” will be at the Playhouse Theatre for 4 performances – July 1, 2 and 3 at 7.30pm, with a matinee Saturday July 3 at 3 pm; and is extra to the subscription programme.

Bookings open Saturday June 12 at 10 am.

The Box Office will be open at the Playhouse Theatre, 2b Steffensen Street, Bundaberg weekends from 10 am til 12 noon, either in person or via phone – 4153 1904; or anytime online here.
