The premise of the show is simple; it’s a 1958 high school prom. The band scheduled to play isn’t available so instead a girl group takes their place at the last minute. During act one, the audience gets to know each of the girls, their hopes dreams and quirks. Act two skips forward 10 years to their 1968 reunion. Songs include “Mr. Sandman,” “Lollipop,” “Secret Love,” “Goodnight Sweetheart,” “Heatwave,” “You Don’t Own Me,” “It’s My Party,” “Son of a Preacher Man” and “Leader of the Pack.”
Tabitha Judy, Tierney Cody, Kelli Brown Mullinix, and Morgan St. Clair will star in the HART performance. They are under the direction of Mark Jones, assisted by Alexia Grant in production number staging and music direction by John R. Crawley.
Tickets are $24 for adults, $22 for seniors and $10 for student/teachers. There is a special $5 discount tickets for students and teachers for Sundays.
