In the musical comedy Xanadu, Kira, a magical and beautiful Greek muse, descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time–the first ROLLER DISCO! But when Kira falls in love with the mortal, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds!
Xanadu will be directed/choreographed by guest artist Christopher George Patterson, an award winning Director/Choreographer, Conceiver, and Performer. A native of New Jersey, Christopher’s work has been featured across the country and Canada.
