This new 1960s-set musical offers a love-letter to the golden era of bubblegum pop.
From the show:
All-American high school garage band Ronny and the Sugars have big dreams of winning the Battle of the Bands and going on tour. However, the real world of 1969 is encroaching on their cartoonish, comic book lives in a big way: a band member’s life is suddenly called to the front-lines of war, there’s a secret inner-band love that must be hidden from the world, and a curmudgeon of a teacher is hot on their trail to stop their candy-coated Rock-N-Roll dreams!
Joey and Ron is a love-letter to the golden era of Bubblegum Music. Fans of The Archies, The Monkees, and the 1910 Fruitgum Company will feel right at home in this bright, Saturday Morning Cartoon world. Others will appreciate the snappy songs and tight storytelling. If you ever wanted to see the true power of a catchy tune and some sweet Na Na Na’s, come to The Players Theater loft space this November!
