A-Wop Bop A-Loo Bop (Venables Theatre)
March 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
A jukebox celebration of the early days of Rock & Roll! presented by Southern Okanagan Secondary School
A-Wop Bop A-Loo Bop takes us back to the late 1950’s as Rock & Roll is taking the airwaves by storm. Roberta “Ruby” Lester and her friends are spunky teenagers with dreams of making it big in the music business. But sometimes dreams don’t go as planned. When the local radio station announces that “Rock‘n’Roll has got to go”, the kids take a stand for the music they love.
In the tradition of Hairspray, A-Wop Bop A-Loo Bop tells an original story based around real events in the late ’50’s and early ’60’s Rock & Roll era. This show features hit songs like “Rock Around The Clock”, “Jailhouse Rock”, “Tutti Frutti”, “Up On the Roof”, “The Loco-Motion”, “I’m Sorry” and “Land Of 1000 Dances”. This new jukebox musical will get a whole new generation rockin’ around the clock!
March 9, 10 @ 7:00pm, March 11 @ 2:00pm & 7:00pm
TICKETS: Adults – $18, Students $13
