Oh your so welcome!
(Very bubbly for 7:43am)

So let me see if I have this right, this is actors with a sheet hung up in the back yard pretending to do a TiKi surfing show/melodrama? With singing and dancing? with a villain and a heroine? Is That what Variety means?
Ole Time Radio? Like 30's style? Not much surfi'n and tiki'n back then, mostly a 50's kind of thing... Surf music? That was mostly 60's. The Noble Gasses? A surf band?

That's the more that I'd need and you don't even have to be happy when you tell me.

We definitely mix eras in the show. The show is anchored by the performances of a few surfing stories taken from 50's and 60's comic books and TV shows read in a radio-show style with music and live sound effects and with art projected behind the actors that relates to each story. In between the stories, we have a few musical acts and more performances. An MC announces the in-between bits which are tiki-themed, including an audience participation performance of "Quiet Village", readings from island-themed record albums (late 50's) and bits from the Brady Bunch Hawaii episodes. Plus a few more things. It all happens inside the WHERE Gallery in LA at Sunset and Griffith Park Blvd.

I hope this helps. Obviously, I'm biased, but it should be a fun show.

Thanks for asking about it.

We've been performing this kind of thing for a long time, from Chicago to LA, with each show themed differently. This is our first surf/tiki theme.

And, yes, I get up early and am a morning person, prone to bubbly exclamation points. My wife hates it.

Well the Noble Gasses are legitimate and if they are friends of Tonga Hut, they are friends of mine.
