HAMMOND, Ind. (May 8, 2022) – Take a trip to the early 1980s and the roller disco era in Bishop Noll Institute’s spring musical Xanadu.
Xanadu is a musical comedy that follows the journey of a magical and wacky 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. But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation, and chaos abounds. A comedy full of 80s classics with a bit of a twist, this is a parody of a beloved cult classic movie.
The show stars Hailey Wojtaszek as Kira/Clio, Jackson Montgomery as Sonny Malone, Gerardo Garcia as Danny Maguire, Indigo Moore as Melpomene, Abigail Wojtaszek as Calliope.
