Off the Charts!
Journey with us from the jukebox to the iPod as we celebrate the universal language of music! This energetic music revue features family-friendly versions of some of pop music’s greatest hits, from “Hound Dog” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand” to “Shake it Off.” With more than a dozen chart-topping songs from the past eight decades, Off the Charts! explores music’s ability to make us think, feel, and connect across generations.
Off The Charts! will perform on select Saturdays and Sundays in free public performances at community locations across Sarasota and Manatee Counties. See below for a schedule of upcoming public performances. Additionally, this music-filled show will also play during weekdays on-site at Florida Studio Theatre for registered camps and community groups June 21, 2022 - August 5, 2022.
