Join the high-flyin’ fun of the post-war 1940s with exuberant jitterbug, boogie-woogie, and jump ‘n’ jive songs of the big band spirit! This one-hour musical gives dancers a chance to showcase their talent within the context of a delightful, family-friendly comedy.

The Montague-Capulet family feud has moved to Venice Beach in the late 1940s. Mr. Montague and his son Ron are planning a jitterbug dance contest. Mr. Capulet and his daughter Juliet are rehearsing “Romeo and Juliet.”IMG_2548

When the community center gets double-booked for both these events at the same time, it’s up to Ron and Juliet to settle the grudge between their fathers.

If they don’t succeed, the mayor threatens to shut down both family businesses. But with a nosy cleaning woman, a slimy lawyer and his escaped con henchman fueling the fire between the families, this tragedy quickly turns into a hysterical comedy.
