Back to the 80s! 2010
Design by ‘Magic’ Ben Watson
Set in the USA, Back To The 80s! tells the story of the senior class of William Ocean High School that graduated in the 1980’s, as remembered and seen through the eyes of Corey Palmer, who is now 30-something. The then 17-year-old Corey is madly in love with his next-door neighbour, Tiffany Houston, one of the coolest girls in the school. However, she barely notices this, as she is too busy mooning over Michael Feldman, the hottest guy around.

This had to be one of the most Scottish renditions of an American pop musical known to man. Particularly the ‘rubix cube,’ moment – where two members of the cast burst out of a rubix cube during a rendition of ‘I Would Walk 500 Miles,’ is long remembered by the cast.
