Get ready for a heat wave of hot tunes at The Norma Terris Theatre this summer! Goodspeed Musicals, the first two-time Tony Award-winning theatre in the country, announced today on Facebook and Twitter that the fab new musical The Bikinis will round out their three-show season. Destined to be a summer smash, this fun-loving, finger-snappin’ blast-from-the-past is chock-full of hit tunes from the 60s and 70s.  Don’t miss The BikinisAugust 9 through September 2, 2012; it’ll be a gas!

Back together again! The sixties girl group that everyone loves is bringing back the sun, fun and all the great songs they sang on the boardwalk at the Jersey Shore…all to raise money to save Sandy Shores Mobile Home Beach Resort.  These Jersey Girls relive their heyday in a non-stop celebration of song with over 30 hits like “It’s In His Kiss,” “Yellow Polka Dot Bikini,” “Heat Wave,”and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” The Bikinis are irresistible!

The Bikinis is conceived and written by Ray Roderick and James Hindman.  Ray Roderick, who is also choreographing and directing the show, has directed numerous Goodspeed Opera House hits including the current sensation Mame, Singin’ in the Rain, My One And Only  and 42nd Street as well as last year’s tin pan alley tuner Hello! My Baby at The Norma Terris Theatre. Mr. Roderick served as the Associate Director of the 2000 Broadway revival of The Music Man and Co-conceived, Directed, and Choreographed the National Tour of Irving Berlin’s I Love A Piano.  James Hindman has acted in several Broadway hits including Mary Poppins, 1776, and City of Angels.
