Special Theme for Rochester Shows

The performers are throwing it back to the 1950s. According to a press release the show will take you back to “a time when hula hoops and soda fountains were abundant, Elvis Presley dominated the airwaves, greased hair was all the rage, and street racing was a parent’s greatest concern!”
