In Chatham, the Mac-Haydn Theatre’s 2015 season ends just before summer does, with music, action, excitement and fun together in a rocking, roller-skating romp as a Greek muse gets mixed up in a modern mortal’s dreams in the stage musical “Xanadu.” Based on the cult classic film starring Gene Kelly and Olivia Newton John, the show opens at Mac-Haydn tonight (Friday, September 11) and runs through Sunday, September 20.

“We’re excited about this show,” Mac-Haydn insiders tell us, “Because it is bringing roller skating back to our building, which was the area’s roller rink at one point in its history. In fact, one of our Board of Directors members told us that his parents met while roller skating here.”
