American history takes on a whole new sound in Pop Goes America! This lively and spirited musical uses hilariously (and sometimes movingly) re-written modern pop music to tell the story of our
nation, from the pilgrims to the revolution, the civil war, and beyond.
A re-written Madonna song telling the story of the suffragettes? A re-imagined Adele song bringing the D-Day invasion to life? Thomas Jefferson singing about the Declaration of Independence to the tune of Mambo Number 5? This is Pop Goes America!
Featuring parodies of modern pop hits by these artists plus Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Shawn Mendes, Coldplay, the Black Eyed Peas, Eminem, Pentatonix, Macklemore, Pink, Christina Aguilera and many more.
We promise the entire family a funny, touching, educational, patriotic musical extravaganza featuring all your favorite songs from the radio – with all new words and a story about the forging of a nation like none other on the planet. A must see for all ages.
