  XANADU follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mt. 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 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 chaos abounds. This hilarious, roller skating, musical adventure about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you, rolls along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, and includes, "Magic", "All Over The World", "Suddenly", "I'm Alive", "Evil Woman", "Have You Never Been Mellow" and "Xanadu", to name a few, and is based on the Universal Pictures' cult classic movie of the same title, which starred Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly.   Cast List KIRA - Katya Bryant SONNY - Isaac Tibbs DANNY - Ian Moore MELPOMENE - Della Kidd CALLIOPE - Carly Quinn ERATO, Goddess of Erotica and Rhymes - Nicole Harrison EUTERPE, Goddess of Music - Maranne McQuade THALIA, Goddess of Comedy - Brendan Dieckmann TERPSICORE, Goddess of Dance - Gavin Drogemuller ZEUS - Douglas Rumble HERMES - Phil Maas EROS (Cupid) - Kaitlyn Carlton YOUNG DANNY - Stewart Matthews ENSEMBLE Ainsley Raymer Samantha Haigh Skyah Fishpool Briana Thompson

A beloved classic brought to life with a Tony award winning score. A haunting and timeless tale of grief and loneliness overcome by time, friendship and a child's simple love of a garden. This enchanting classic of children's literature is reimagined in brilliant musical style by composer Lucy Simon and Marsha Norman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of 'Night Mother. Orphaned in India, 11 year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. The estate's many wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies and the "Dreamers", spirits from Mary's past who guide her through her new life, dramatizing The Secret Garden's compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.
