Take a trip on ‘Route 66’ at Meadow Brook Theatre

American musical runs April 24 – May 19, 2024, on the campus of Oakland University

Ring in spring with a musical road trip from Chicago to California with 34 songs from the 50s and 60s. From “King of the Road” to “The Little Old Lady from Pasadena” and, of course, “Route 66,” it’s a great time to get your kicks.

The musical revue Route 66, by Roger Bean, runs April 24 through May 19, 2024, at Meadow Brook Theatre (MBT) on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester.

“People are going to know a bunch of the songs and be bopping along,” Travis Walter, MBT artistic director. “ Roger Bean does a great job of bundling these familiar songs into shows our audiences love.”
