Every decade has certain trends that develop… the 60’s had its hippie counter culture, the 70’s had bell bottoms and disco… but no other decade had the sheer explosion of pop culture like the 80’s. And so much of this cavalcade of wild styles and crazy quirks was a direct reflection of the music of the time. The Billboard charts of the 1980’s featured the biggest variety of music styles and genres since the birth of rock and roll. There were the ladies of the pop charts like Madonna, Tina Turner with their big hair sprayed bangs… to the hard rock guy bands like Def Leppard and Bon Jovi with their… ahh… also big hair sprayed bangs.

So, DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’, and join us at Jubilations Dinner Theatre as we JOURNEY to the time when we were LIVIN’ ON A PRAYER, and we all had a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART.

Jubilations Dinner Theatre presents Journey to the 80’s!
