Set in the USA, 'Back to the 80's' tells the story of the senior class of William Ocean High School that graduated in the 1980's, as remembered and seen through the eyes of Corey Palmer. The show will combine classic pop songs from the likes of Madonna, Cyndi Lauper and Billy Ocean to name a few, with a feel-good story line and lots of dancing.

Ruth Davies, Lecturer for Performing Arts and Music, said "The production is bound to be a huge success, our students have been working very hard to ensure the show is an extravaganza. They have thoroughly enjoyed working all the different areas such as costume, dance, stage set up which are vital to ensure the production is successful. We look forward to welcoming everyone to 'Back to the 80s - the Totally Awesome Musical' from 21 - 23 March."
