A Risky, Goonie, Breakfasty Tale Of Totally Tubular Time Travel

Hold on to your hover boards, we’re taking a trip “Back to the Eighties!”

When modern teen Mary Fitzfry gets sent back in time by an eccentric professor, she finds herself in the middle of a totally tubular cavalcade of 80s pop culture. There’s a lot of familiar faces, from the teens in breakfast-time detention to the guys chasing ghosts and dancing zombies, but the biggest surprise of all is Mary’s own protective mom as a teen. Turns out she’s actually kind of rad – but thanks to Mary’s time travel, she’s in trouble. Can Mary make things right?

Don’t miss out on this adventure that takes you from the mall where everything happens, to a suburban sitcom street, to a cave under the high school. This hilarious parody is sure to make all ages cheer “I love the 80s!” Performed by a cast of 47 local youth ranging in age from 7-13, BACK TO THE EIGHTIES is directed by Emily Yaksic.

Main Stage ♦ Tickets: $19 adult; $12 child age 12 & younger
