Skates the Musical
Performing at the Studebaker Theater
New musical SKATES is a coming of age story with a twist. It’s 1994 and rock star, Jacqueline Miller has a lot to celebrate. She’s headlining her first national tour, has a hit record and is riding high. In the midst of this, she has agreed to kick off the gala re-opening of her beloved childhood roller rink, Windy City Skates.
When complications hit her head-on, she takes a retrospective journey back to 1977 and finds herself again when she meets up with her 12-year-old self and all of the people who have made her who she is.
From the wisdom of the Ouija Board, to the power of All-Skate Saturday, SKATES explores the magic and hope of finding your one true love while still being true to yourself.
To protect patrons and performers alike, all guests must show proof of vaccination and wear a mask during the performance.
