We are excited to be producing this original musical comedy by Connecticut writer Roy O’Neil. The show is set in Waterbury Connecticut. It is the story of Eddie and his band, a one hit wonder from the 1960s, who 30 years later try to save the Palace Theater where the band got both its start and its name. It’s a roller coaster ride of emotional moments with endearing songs to make you sing and dance, and a crew of corrupt politicians who will make you laugh till you cry.
