When wallflower Charlie Baker goes on a getaway to a fishing lodge in Georgia, all he wants is peace and quiet. He can't avoid the other guests, though, so a helpful friend "saves" him by claiming he is a foreigner who cannot speak or understand English. Comedy ensues as everyone unwittingly reveals their secrets and scandals to Charlie, thinking he can't understand. What started as a serene getaway becomes a hive of drama and intrigue in this exceedingly clever and outrageously funny farce. Learn More

- “Lamb’s Players gets it right! Thanks to versatile performers, a crack band, Kerry Meads’ turn-on-a-dime staging, and the writers’ savvy concept. They whip it good!” --<em>San Diego Union-Tribune </em>(Critic's Choice)<em> </em>
- "If you’re not of the era, just sit back and enjoy the spectacle! What really matters is personality, and this company has it! -- <em>San Diego Theatre Scene</em> (Best Bet)
The musical miXtape takes audiences on a seriously wild musical ride back to that most awesome of decades, featuring the greatest hits of the '80s, including music by Genesis, Madonna, Sting, U2, Oingo Boingo, The Smiths, Duran Duran, Amy Grant, Huey Lewis and the News, Depeche Mode, the B-52s, the Pointer Sisters and Michael Jackson, among many others. Reagan was in the White House, lycra and legwarmers were the accessories du jour and a "mixtape" of favorite tunes was the ultimate in self-expression.
A lousy economy was about to bounce back like we’d never seen, set to the synthesized beat of '80s rock. The Cold War was heating up, and with fingers on the nuclear button, the world was sure to end any moment. But for Generation X, life was just beginning. Put on your suspenders, pull out the Members Only jacket, do your hair up with a scrunchy and "cut footloose" for this totally rad musical world premiere.
The show runs 2 hours and 25 minutes with one intermission.
