The Hippodrome Theatre is renowned for it’s fun-loving summer musicals, and this year we’ve done it again! Audiences have flocked to the theatre for past hits “The Marvelous Wonderettes,” “Honky Tonk Angels,” and last summer’s held-over revue “Forever Plaid.” Summer 2018 promises to hold even more music and entertainment as the Hipp delights audiences with “The Bikinis: A New Musical Beach Party“!
Ready for the summer? So are we! “The Bikinis” will have audiences reveling in rock’n’roll smash hits from the 60s and 70s, as the knock-out group “The Bikinis” keeps the beat going with a night of nostalgia you won’t find anywhere else. This group is the original Jersey Girls saturated in Jersey Shore, just like the bikinis they used to wear.
You’ve heard of the Jersey Boys, now it’s time to meet the Jersey Girls: Jodi, Annie, Karla and Barbara who bring the fun, the sun and the biggest voices this side of the Jersey turnpike.
Reunited after 20 years, the four Jersey Girls deliver the songs and memories of their youth through a musical songbook we all know and love. With hair as big as their voices, these empowered yet inseparable friends bring their sass, charm and talent to save the Sandy Shores Mobile Home Beach Resort from big-buck investors on the famed Jersey Shore boardwalk. Based on a true story, “The Bikinis” is the ultimate story of the underdog determined to take on the greedy, out-of-town, condo-building developers who would tear down their homes.
THE BIKINIS is a nonstop celebration of song featuring the hits: “Yellow Polka Dot Bikini,” “Heat Wave,” “Under The Boardwalk,” “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’,” “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” and “I Will Survive,” this swirl of musical memories will have you foot-tapping to the tunes you didn’t know you missed so bad!
THE BIKINIS, created by Ray Roderick and James Hindman, is directed by Lauren Warhol Caldwell.
