More About Hip to the Groove (50's Show) - Lamplight Theatre

Are you a fan of “Grease” or “West Side Story”? If so, you don’t want to miss LampLight Theatre’s musical romantic comedy, Hip to the Groove. This nostalgic production will take you back to a time of poodle skirts and greasers. Classic songs of the 1950’s underscore this hip, reminiscent performance.

Prompted by his uncle (Rev. Callahan), a troubled teen (Rex Callahan) moves with his mother and sister to the small town of Porterville. Due to his father’s death and his older brother being drafted to the Korean War, Rex is left shilly-shallied. A local male gang (The Blue Knights) and female gang (The Diamonettes) vie for his attention. Their efforts are intercepted by the friendship and faith of a modest young lady (Christina Jackson) and her outcast friends.

The local chapter of the Red Cross led by Nurse Doris Ansell and her bumbling sidekicks (Gladys and Bonnie) host a fundraiser for the military troops. They have caught the attention of Bobby Lee Ross, the host of American Jukebox. This popular national teen television dance show comes to town with a host of celebrity performers including The Chenilles, Jeanette Bonicaro, and “heartthrob”, Frankie Dean.

This witty production also brings a deeper message. Drama ensues as Rex stands at a crossroads and a crisis of personal belief. Absentee fathers are the common denominator among the spectrum of broken teens in Porterville, but Providence will soon bring them all together. Learning how to love will determine their futures.

Feel free to wear your favorite 50’s apparel! Performances for Hip to the Grove will be held April 20th thru 22nd and April 27th thru 29th. Show times are 7:00 on Fridays and Saturdays with additional matinee performances on Saturdays at 2:00 p.m. and on Sundays at 3:00 p.m. Doors will open one hour prior to performances.
