Gregory Family Theater

Xanadu Jr, is inspired by the Tony Award nominated Broadway musical and the Universal Pictures’ cult classic movie starring Olivia Newton-Jon and Gene Kelly.  It is a moving, electrifying tale of endless fun that will keep audiences in stitches while the original, legendary, chart-topping tunes will lift them out of their seats.  The show follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to create the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first Roller Disco. (Hey, it’s 1980!)  But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds!
