The UNBC Musical Productions Club is returning to the Theatre Northwest stage with Cry-Baby the Musical, an absurd, campy, hysterical take on the well known 50s rebellious teenage romance.

Based on the cult classic film by John Waters, Cry-Baby the Musical is “edgier than Grease, funnier than West Side Story” and full of rockabilly tunes that keep the audience dancing in their seats.

The actors will also be joined by a live band.

Set in 1954, Cry-Baby tells the story of Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker, the coolest boy in Baltimore.

He's a bad boy with a good cause – truth, justice and the pursuit of rock and roll. Cry-Baby and the square rich girl, Allison, are star-crossed lovers at the centre of this world.

“It's Romeo and Juliet meets High School Hellcats, no wait, it’s Grease meets Rocky Horror Picture Show! Or is it Heathers meets Evil Dead!? Come see for yourself and help support the future of performing arts in Prince Geroge in the most outrageous show on stage this year!” say the UNBC Musical Production club in a news release.

The production takes place between March 14 and 17 and then the 21 to 23. General admission will be $20 and students are $10. 

Tickets are available at
