HIT HER WITH THE 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, Jacqueline 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, the family-friendly musical HIT HER WITH THE SKATES explores the magic and hope of finding your one true love while still being true to yourself.
“Chicago, we are here for you and excited to continue our journey to bring HIT HER WITH THE SKATES home. Keeping our audience and company members safe is our top priority at this time. Forward Motion!” said HIT HER WITH THE SKATES creative producer Christine Rea.
