This Tony Award nominated, hilarious musical adventure about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you, is based on the 1980 cult classic film starring Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly with amazing music by ELO.
Greek muse, Kira, descends from Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! When Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation, and chaos abounds.

We've been having a blast getting the show ready - thanks to Taylor Long for this reel!
Thanks to Keith Hickman, our roller coach!
Some of the Xanadu cast have already been on their feet at RollerPony in Etobicoke this summer (they were tempted to hijack the disco ball). We can't wait to start rehearsals soon!
Then in late August, Cara (Kira) and Charlie (Sonny) were invited to perform 'Suddenly' at a screening of the original film at the Revue Theatre! It was a sold out, boisterous crowd and we were able to spread the word about our November production. Disco dancing was also on the menu - you can spot our prez in the shots below! A huge thank you to the Revue Cinema and the evening's host, Anthony Oliveria for allowing us to take part in the event. It was a great evening and we highly recommend checking out their next screening of Johnny Mnemonic on Saturday, September 30th. For more information on that event click here.
