Long-time Charleston entertainers Brad and Jennifer Moranz are setting a teenage love story to beloved rock and roll hits from the 1950s and early 1960s. “Rock and Roll is Here to Stay!” is a brand new show running March 27-29 at the Charleston Music Hall.
In this show, “It’s a Wonderful Life” meets “Happy Days” as an angel works to get his wings by doing a good deed of helping four hopelessly mismatched teenage couples fall in love. The somewhat bumbling angel is assisted by two seasoned angels played by Brad and Jennifer Moranz.
Whether the 1950s was your generation or your grandparent’s era, everyone will recognize these rock ‘n roll classics: "Johnny B. Goode," "This Magic Moment," "It's My Party," "Great Balls of Fire," "Can't Help Falling in Love” and many more.
“You’re going to know these songs no matter what your age,” Brad Moranz said. “They’ve been used in feature films, TV and even stage. The songs of this era are timeless.”
“Rock and Roll is Here to Stay!” is at 7 p.m. Friday, March 27 and on Saturday, March 28. The matinee performance is at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 29.
Tickets: adults $34; seniors (age 62 or older) and military $31; groups of 15 or more $28; students (21 and under with ID) $19; kids 12 and under $16. Additional etix fees apply. For ticket information, visit www.bradandjennifermoranz.com.
