The theme this year is “Through The Decades” There will be lots of great songs as well as the usual antics of the semi-disfunctional Flugge family as they attend their high school reunion in Estes Park amidst music, dancing, and lots of laughter. This is a great show!
Just some of the songs you’ll enjoy are: “Thriller,” “My Guy,” “YMCA,” “60s With A Twist” a medley of 60s hits, “Boogie, Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You,” “Proud Mary,” “The Rose,” “Tom Dooley,” and a host of other memorable songs. You’ll meet the cast of the Brady Bunch, Gilligan’s Island and the Addams Family and reminisce with Sonny and Cher, Tina Turner and Laverne and Shirley.
Tickets for the show are going fast and are now available at Macdonald Book Shop, the Estes Park Convention and Visitors Bureau or at the door, if available. But don’t wait, get your tickets now as there is limited seating for the dinner and show combination.
