San Luis Obispo Repertory Theatre is delighted to bring roller-skating Greek muses, 1980s-style and the original, chart-topping score of XANADU to downtown San Luis Obispo this June. This hilarious, roller skating, musical adventure rolls along to a fabulous, original hit score composed by pop/rock legends, Jeff Lynne and John Farrar. Based on the Universal Pictures cult classic movie of the same title, XANADU is hilarity on wheels, a moving, electrifying tale of endless fun that will keep audiences in stitches and lift them out of their seats. XANADU is just plain fun – silly, irresistible, nostalgic nonsense with terrific music that will keep audiences humming long after they leave the theatre.
XANADU follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the world’s first ROLLER DISCO! (Hey, it's 1980!) But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation, and hilarious chaos abounds.
XANADU runs June 10-July 3 with performances Thursdays through Saturdays at 7 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m.
