Travel back to a time of big hair, shoulder pads and leg warmers with Hey! Dancin'! Hey! Musical!, the '80s musical based on Factory Theater's hit comedy, which Time Out Chicago named one of the best plays in the city. Set in Chicago in 1986, this hilarious musical is packed with original songs that evoke everything from the power ballads of Heart to the feel-good synth-pop of The Pointer Sisters and Glenn Frey. The story follows teenagers Halle and Trisha as they finagle their way into the final taping of the hippest cable-access dance show in the Chicagoland area in the hopes of finding true love.

By Len Jenkin
Directed by Corri Feuerstein
It is night, we are in America, and the time is now.
The voiceless drifter…a young girl…the down-and-out businessman…a carnival barker…the mayor of nowhere…the struggling reporter…a restless woman…the singing con artists…the mad professor…all of their disparate desperations struggling to be heard. These are the people in our neighborhood.
This is interesting country. Look around.
Part intertwined character sketchbook, part postcard collection, and held together by desperation and coffee-fueled late-night conversation; American Notes is a surreal journey into the American Myth and the mysteries of Who We Are, What We Do, and Is That Crocodile Dead? Jenkin’s darkly comic tale keeps us wondering what’s lurking just beyond our view. WAFF Artistic Director and co-founder Corri Feuerstein directs the play and its multifarious miscellany.
Featuring: F.Tyler Burnet, Devon Carson, LaQuin Groves, Andrew Jordan, Scott Pasko, Tony Piscotti, Jenna Rabideaux, Justin Speer, Melissa Tropp, and CW van Baale
