In this fun and highly entertaining pop rock performance, the students of the Uptown Music Collective bring back to life the glitzy female-driven music of the 1980s. The performance features the music of artists like Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, the Go Go’s, the Bangles, Pat Benatar, and many more. All dressed up in a 1980’s stage show that guarantees that everyone leaves the theater with a smile on their face. 

Note: Tickets for this performance will be “reserved seating”, no longer “general admission”. You will pick your seats on the CAC website when you order tickets!
