What do a fallen Greek muse, roller skates and 1980s Venice Beach have in common? Find out during Prairie High School’s upcoming production of Xanadu from Music Theatre International.
Written by Douglas Carter Beane, with music and lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, Xanadu follows Greek muse Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, California, in 1980. She is on a quest to inspire struggling artist Sonny to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first roller disco. But when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds.
“The wheels are in motion! Let us skate into your hearts!” said Prairie Drama’s director Claire Verity.
Tickets will be available online starting Friday, Feb. 17, and cost $6 for students, $13 for adults and $11 for honored citizens. Prices at the door will be slightly higher.
Showtimes are Friday, Feb. 17 and 24, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 18 and 25, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. There will be a sign language interpreter during the 1 p.m. showing on Saturday, Feb. 18.
Xanadu is described as a moving, electrifying tale of endless fun that will keep audiences in stitches while the original legendary, chart-topping tunes lift them out of their seats. You’ll want to keep the music in your head and Xanadu in your heart… forever.
