xanadu

Book by Douglas Carter Beane
Music and Lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar
Based on the Universal Pictures film with a screenplay by Richard Danus & Marc Rubel

Xanadu follows the journey of Kira, a magical and beautiful Greek muse.  She has descended from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, in a quest to inspire Sonny to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first roller disco!  When Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds. This roller-skating musical is based on the cult classic movie of the same title, which starred Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly. This Young Artists Production features performers ages 13 to 18. Directed by Ed Trout.
