Springer Theatricals is taking its “Route 66” musical on the road this winter and spring, including two towns on the Mother Road next month.
Here’s the play’s premise, according to BroadwayWorld.com:
In this musical comedy, a gang of rowdy Chicago service station attendants (played by Brian C. Gray, Dylan R. Hauck, Reid Robinson and Casey Ross) strip off their snappy uniforms and head off on a westward-bound road-trip filled with music, dance and highway mischief.
The talented quartet of singing grease monkeys leave Chicago and follows the Mother Road down through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and conclude their travels at the beach in Santa Monica, California.
Directed and choreographed by Kimberly Faith Hickman, the show features rock and pop music from the 1950’s and ‘60’s including such hit tunes as “King of the Road”, “Dead Man’s Curve”, “Six Days on the Road”, “Hot Rod Queen”, “I Get Around”, “Little Old Lady from Pasadena”, “GTO”, “Fun-Fun-Fun” and, of course, “Route 66”.
According to Springer’s schedule, “Route 66” will hit the Route 66 towns of Miami, Okla. (at the Coleman Theatre Beautiful) on March 13 and Claremore, Okla. (at the Robson Performing Arts Center) on March 14.
