Backstage Theatre - Awesome 80s

Last Weekend for Totally Awesome 80s, Last Weekend to Win VIP Beer Fest Tickets

In Breckenridge Events by Mike

Hey Everyone,

I finally saw “Totally Awesome 80s Ski Town USA” at our very own Backstage Theatre and felt compelled to write this post…


Because it is fucking awesome.


Backstage Theatre - Awesome 80s

There are just 3 performances left (this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday), so get your tickets now!

A little about this show…this is an original musical, featuring awesome ’80s-like’ songs, but it is not 2 hours of covers of your favorite 80s songs (although you will hear some of that before the show and during intermission).

What makes this show so great is that it’s set in “Ski Town, USA” which may as well be Breckenridge. It’s also full of ski town jokes, is super cheesy in the best way, and incorporates everything you love about those 80s movies…a corporate tycoon trying to take over the town, his dickhead son who happens to be dating the hot girl, the foreign exchange student who will stop at nothing to get laid, and the new guy in town who has to win an insanely difficult ski race to save the town and get the girl.

Add in some cross-dressing, the one black guy, and the kind, old shopowner with everything to lose, and this show really has it all. Get your tix now…just a few seats remain for this weekend’s performances!
