The roller-skating musical adventure hits the message of following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you, rolling along to the 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, which starred Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly, Xanadu is hilarity on wheels for adults, children and anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired.
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 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.
Xanadu is 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. Featuring the hit songs “Magic,” “Suddenly,” “Strange Magic” and “Evil Women.”
The Wayne Theatre is located at 521 W. Main St. in Waynesboro.
