Canterbury Summer Theatre premieres the first musical of its 2022 season with Streakin' Thru the '70!s!, performing June 22-July 2. The theatre is located at 807 Franklin Street in Michigan City.
Written By James A. Rocco & Albert Evans, the show is an outrageous, mind-blowing dash through the “Me Decade,” complete with (shh!) a real life streaker.
Featuring over 40 hit songs, Streakin’ Through the 70s! is filled with enough music and comedy sketches to make your bell bottoms burst. You'll be dancing in the aisles to classics such as "Play That Funky Music," "You Sexy Thing," "Peace Train," "Smokin' in the Boys Room" and many more.
The production is staged by Canterbury Artistic Director, Ray Scott Crawford.
The Canterbury Music Director this season is Yuan-Hung Lin. She received her Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Mississippi, and also studied at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in England.
The cast, who will all be making their Canterbury debut, is Mitchell Bauer, Kate Drury, Jack Gordon, Mai Hartwich, Massimo Manfredini, and Kendall Shamus.
