August 3rd – 26th.
Catch the “magic”. It’s the roller-skating musical adventure of your dreams! Skate on back to the 80’s and join Seacoast Repertory Theatre for the endless fun of Xanadu!
Critics call our production of Xanadu “...a dazzling, thoroughly worthy experience of camp and hilarious frivolity.”
Xanadu follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mount Olympus to 1980’s Venice Beach, California on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ever roller-disco. But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation, and chaos abounds, but in a way that’s appropriate for the whole family.
Based on the Universal Pictures cult classic 80’s movie of the same title, which starred Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly, Xanadu is hilarity on wheels for adults, children and anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired. Featuring monster chart-topping pop hits like “Evil Woman”, “I’m Alive” and “Strange Magic”, Xanadu is a nostalgic blast from the past with an irresistible and hilarious book.
Xanadu is directed and designed by the Mad Men of Oopsy Daisy Inc., the minds behind our smash hits Avenue Q, Reefer Madness, Rock of Ages, and Mad Haus, and filled with the best regional talent.
Showtimes are Thursdays at 7:30, Fridays at 8:00, Saturdays at 2:00 and 8:00 and Sundays at 2:00. Xanadu is appropriate for all audiences. For tickets, click below or call our box office Tuesday through Sunday between 12pm and 6pm at 603-433-4472.
