Join the Red Wing High School as they perform for their annual Musical!
This girl-loves-ghoul rock ‘n’ roll Off Broadway musical is set in the atomic 1950s at Enrico Fermi High, where the law is laid down by a zany, tyrannical principal. Pretty senior, Toffee, has fallen for the class bad boy. Family pressure forces her to end the romance, and he charges off on his motorcycle to the nuclear waste dump. He returns glowing and determined to reclaim Toffee’s heart. He still wants to graduate, but most of all he wants to take Toffee to the prom. The principal orders him to drop dead while a scandal reporter seizes on him as the freak du jour. History comes to his rescue while a tuneful selection of original songs in the style of 50s hits keeps the action rocking across the stage.

All revenues go to the district to cover these direct, show-related, out-of-pocket expenses. Pricing each year is designed to cover most expenses, but not all. District #256 invests additional funds knowing how valuable it is. Without you showing up and buying a ticket, it would not be possible at all. Thank you for supporting young artists, just as we support young athletes at games and fundraisers, by coming out and being a part of an exceptional educational and community experience.
