Join us for the World Premiere of a brand new jukebox musical! This original musical, featuring more than a dozen and a half 50s tunes, takes you to Babe’s Diner and the annual sock hop. The grill cook, Berger, and his band Berger & Fries,  battle with the new local girls group, The Shakes,  to see which band gets to perform at the hop, but when they learn the diner is in foreclosure they have to join forces to save the day and the diner. A burger & fries is always better with a shake!

The story focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years.
