A NEW Musical Comedy
By John Driscoll & Jan Kopp
Due to overwhelming response and many sold-out evenings, Off Broadstreet will extend STROLLIN’ & TWISTIN’ AT THE MAI TAI for one additional
weekend, now closing on Sep. 1st.
Two brothers have cashed in their airline retirement to open a theme bar on Hawaii’s big island, called Max’s Mai Tai. Their plan is to market the “Baby Boomer” experience of the 1950’s and 1960’s to all the “rich Boomer tourists.” Enlisting the help of their somewhat square sister and two of her former college vocal students, they create a floor show act called “Strollin’ and Twistin.” The result is wonderful music from the “Golden Age of American Bandstand” plus
some interesting romantic twists as these neophytes struggle to learn the genre.
In Strollin & Twistin at the Mai Tai,. OBS regulars Jay Barker (DiLuca’s Pizza and Songbird Christmas) and Kelly Nevius (Forever Plaid and Who The Hell is Holly Miller?) are joined by Rebekah Martino, Kristen DeKowzan and Tasa Proberts (All three from Sweet Nothin’s).
With inventive choreography by Tina Marie Kelly and a varied collection of all your favorite songs of the period, including hits by Bobby Vinton, Elvis, The Platters, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Righteous Brothers, The Chiffons, The Beatles, The McGuire Sisters and many more, this talented cast will take you on a wonderful, nostalgic journey to “The Golden Age of American Bandstand” (1955-1965). Strollin & Twistin at the Mai Tai has laughs and great music and is suitable for all ages.
Pre-show entertainment is provided by Chris Crockett beginning one hour before show time for all performances. For further information or for
