It's the 1960s, a big nuclear blast to the past! School's out for the summer, and the teenagers of Ocean View High are ready to surf, sun and have some fun. Their favorite hangout is Barnacle Betty's Beach Club, which happens to be right next door to the evil Ivana Ratnik's nuclear power plant. But, ooops! Cindy Sue, the head cheerleader, accidentally gets some nuclear slime on her hot dog instead of pickle relish, and soon the beach is overrun with pom-pom wielding zombies! Her all-American boyfriend, the beatniks, the nerds and the tough girl gang named the Barracudas rally their forces to save the beach from the atomic attackers. A sci-fi spoof of those beach blanket flicks of the '60s, the score explodes with hilarious hits like "School's Out," "Don't Touch the Hair," "It's Cool to Be a Nerd," "My Girlfriend's Dead (And I'm Gonna Be in Trouble)," "Voo-Doo Shoo-Be-Doo" and the dance craze, "Doin' the Zombie." 

The rehearsal schedule will be:Tuesdays 6-8pm, Saturdays 2-5pm, Thursdays (starting May 25th) 6-8pm
Production week will start Sunday June 18th and all involved are asked to be available.
Performances will be Thursday June 22, Friday June 23, and Saturday June 24 at 7:30pm as well as Sunday June 25 at 2pm.
