Live On Stage: “Xanadu Jr.”
July 12, 2019 @ 7:00 pm$6 – $12
In Venice, California, Sonny the street artist has big dreams. He’s just finished painting a mural of the nine Muses from Greek mythology, but he’s dissatisfied with his work and feeling discouraged about his talent. Enter Kira, the youngest of the Muses, who magically comes to life straight from Mount Olympus through the mural to inspire him.
She soon discovers that Sonny has an even bigger vision: opening a roller disco. And it looks like on old theater named Xanadu, in need of restoration, would be a great place for it. Now, if Kira’s eight jealous sisters would just stop reminding her that it is forbidden for a Muse to fall in love with a mortal… not to mention trying to put a curse on her…
Hilarity on wheels, this musical is based on the 1980 cult-classic film. There’s plenty of love, laughter, glitter, and “strange magic” for anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired!
