They’ve got the beat in the kingdom of Arcadia! But it is all at risk when the King receives a most dire prophecy. The royal family’s  journey to evade fate leads each member on a path of discovery centered on equity, inclusion, and self-knowledge. Love is love in this bawdy, madcap combination of a 16th century romance and the songs of 80’s rockers the Go-Go’s. Heaven isn’t just a place on earth. It’s on the stage!
