It's Rocky meets Saturday Night Fever"—Edmonton Journal

By Farren Timoteo

Salvatore Mantini, an Italian immigrant from Abruzzo, invites the audience to eat with him in his traditional dining room in Jasper, Alberta. As he prepares the meal, course-by-course, Salvatore’s story unfolds. As does the story of Francesco Mantini, his teenage son, struggling in the 1970s to find his place in small-town Alberta. Fed up with years of bullying, Francesco leaves his father behind to reinvent himself as the crooner and ladies’ man, Frank Martin. However, even with an entirely new identity, Francesco discovers just how difficult it is to escape where he truly comes from. Weaving the electrifying music of the 1970s with classic Italian tunes, this five-time Jessie Award–nominated show is a hilarious coming-of-age story about a kid with the heart of Rocky Balboa and the moves—and hair—of John Travolta.

Show includes strong language and mature themes. Theatrical devices such as water-based stage fog, and strobe lighting may occur. Programming, casting, dates, and prices are subject to change. Prices include taxes and facility fees.
