St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is delighted to present ST. PAUL’S TONIGHT: ABSOLUTELY NOT THE ‘80S, a musical revue for all ages, on April 29 and 30 at the John Glenn Middle School auditorium.

It’s the sixth incarnation of ST. PAUL’S TONIGHT, and this time the cast faces a dilemma: what happens when the director is out of ideas? Cast members offer several possibilities, with a strong emphasis on the songs and stylings of that most radical of decades, the 1980s. Will the show be totally tubular? Or will the director put the kibosh on their dreams of Valley Girl glory?

Billy Walker and Ken Larson advise the audience to “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.”

The 50-member cast includes parishioners from preschoolers to senior citizens, with a special appearance by local rock band Stacy and the Party, fronted by St. Paul’s own Stacy Schalick. Highlights include performances of ‘80s favorites “Mickey” by Toni Basil and “Whip It” by Devo, as well as show tunes and more traditional fare, such as “Dear Theodosia” from HAMILTON and “Bushel and a Peck” from GUYS AND DOLLS. The show is written and directed by Emily Mitchell. Joe Wright serves as music director, and Louisa Saladino-Kuhl is the producer.

Performances are Saturday, April 29, at 7 pm and Sunday, April 30, at 3 pm. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door or from any cast member. John Glenn Middle School is located at 99 McMahon Road, Bedford.
