Casting Call for FB.JPG

Synopsis:
The music of The Aquatones is the driving pulse of 40 Years Too Late.  The captivating nature of the music energizes an enchanting tale of a teenage girl’s quest for love during the early years of rock and roll while contending with the lustful behavior of teenage boys.  The vitality of the dance numbers combines with the musical harmony and lyrics of doo wop and early rock and roll music to provide the audience with a nostalgic trip back to the 1960s.
