There is a new show coming to the Meridian Little Theater stage! Back To The 80s! Opening night is not far away! The show opens on Saturday, September 11, 2021.

This show will be so much fun!
Says MLT board President Sydni Covinton.

Back To The 80's tells the story of the senior class of William Ocean High School as remembered through the eyes of now 30-something Corey Palmer. 17-year-old Corey is madly in love with his next-door neighbor, Tiffany Houston, one of the coolest girls in the school. However, she is too busy mooning over Michael Feldman, the hottest guy around. Michael and his friends are athletic and good-looking - the kind of guys that Corey and his two best friends dream of being. However, while they may not be the coolest guys in school, they are still one up on Feargal McFerrin III, whose best friend is his computer, and who believes the crazy notion that one day CD's will replace cassette tapes. Throw in a Star Wars dream sequence, high-energy dance routines, the obligatory 80's party scene, copious amounts of blue eye-shadow, twenty cans of hairspray, as well as some of the most popular songs ever written, and the result is a musical that not only will delight and amuse audiences of any age, but will also inspire any young cast. Back To The 80's is a high-energy musical with contemporary flair that will certainly fill the seats.
