with a dash of XANADU!
ABOUT THE SHOW
SKATES is a coming of age story with a twist. It’s 1994 and rock star, Jacqueline Miller has a lot to celebrate. She’s headlining her first national tour, has a hit record and is riding high. In the midst of this, she has agreed to kick off the gala re-opening of her beloved childhood roller rink, Windy City Skates.
When complications hit her head-on, she takes a retrospective journey back to 1977 and finds herself again when she meets up with her 12-year-old self and all of the people who have made her who she is.
From the wisdom of the Ouija Board, to the power of All-Skate Saturday, SKATES explores the magic and hope of finding your one true love while still being true to yourself.
