Take a trip back in time to 3rd February 1959, and the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa. The Winter Dance Party featuring Buddy Holy, the Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens is just ending and the boys leave for that fateful flight on the day the music died, securing their place in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. With their pilot Roger they find themselves at the Celestial Soda Fountain in the company of the barmaid Stella. Soon the truth becomes all too clear: each of the boys has some unfinished business to address within themselves before the path to eternity is complete, and along the way the characters raise the roof to cosmic heights with all their greatest hits. By the time salvation arrives, this clever, moving and very funny show will have the audiences on their feet for more!
