Set in 1960s Baltimore, this popular musical is based on the 1980s John Waters' film of the same name. Inspired by real events surrounding The Buddy Deane TV show, it tells the story of how a group of teenagers battle the racist segregation of the time in order to sing and dance together on television. The stand-out feel-good songs, such as Good Morning Baltimore and You Can't Stop The Beat, are contrasted with the poignant I Know Where I Have Been, which inspires us all to rise up against injustice.
The cast and audience certainly rose to the occasion in turning the performances into an unforgettable experience.
