Fresh off the heels of the worldwide success of her hit musical, Rock Of Ages, Broadway’s hottest young Tony-nominated director Kristin Hanggi is now set to launch her second Rock Extravaganza with Surf The Musical, a magical spectacle sure to delight the critics and have the audience dancing in the aisles. “We want to capture the essence of what made the music great,” said Hanggi.

Music-lovers of all ages will revel in the onstage sparkle of the big waves, as Surf The Musical places the genius of the Beach Boys music front and center. A fabulous company of sun-tanned dancers and singers will rock the audience with the legendary hit songs of America’s band, as they tell a carefree story of good vibrations set in the nostalgic, happy times of the 1960s Southern California beach community.

Hanggi has put together an amazing state-of-the-art dream team of Broadway’s top backstage talents who will light up the showroom at Planet Hollywood with a modern, technologically eye-popping production. This multi-talented array includes set designer Beowulf Boritt (The Scottsboro Boys), lighting designer Howell Binkley (Jersey Boys, Memphis), costume designer Gregory Gale (Arcadia, The Wedding Singer, Urinetown), Grammy Award-winning Music Producer Frank Filipetti, and Music Director Ed Hamilton (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Promises Promises).

Utilizing cutting-edge, innovative technology from projection design wizard Darrel Maloney (the genius behind the high-paced media of American Idiot), and celebratory choreography from RJ Durell and Nick Florez (Michael Jackson’s Immortal, Katy Perry’s California Girls World Tour, Madonna’s Confessions Tour), Surf the Musical will rock the Las Vegas strip.

Surf The Musical promises to be Las Vegas’ hottest new musical extravaganza, as audiences are transported into the magic of the early 1960’s and the sweet sounds of summer enhanced by such memorable Beach Boy hits as California Girls, Help Me, Rhonda, I Get Around, Fun, Fun, Fun, God Only Knows, Wouldn’t It Be Nice, and many, many more.
