Are you tired of the cold weather? Do you yearn for those lazy days of summer with its warmth, the beach, the ocean, the fun times with friends? You can channel some of that summer fun next week at Macopin School’s presentation of “Wipeout! A Beach Blast Musical!”

With the mixed style of classic beach party movies that featured such stars as Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello, and a touch of flair from more recent popular beach blanket movies like “Teen Beach Movie,” the middle school student stars of “Wipeout!” have been hard at work for months preparing to bring a touch of summer to West Milford a little early this year.

“Wax up your surfboards, get out your beach blankets and catch the wave of this swell surf musical," says the promo materials for Wipeout.

It’s just another sunny day at Avalon Beach until Mom and Pop announce they’re selling their beloved surf shop and teen hangout. The snobbish developers from the nearby ritzy cove want Avalon’s stretch of sand... for a parking lot! But Mom and Pop’s daughter, Midge, and all the loyal Avalon kids are determined — they’re not going to let that happen. Riptide, the local kahuna, enters the big surf contest to vie for the grand prize money that will keep The Shack’s doors open, but the crowd from the Cove will do anything to put the kibosh on Rip winning the prize money, including sabotage.

The show will no doubt bring forth some amusing, enjoyable, entertainment (and perhaps even a few memories of summers-gone-by) for audiences of all ages. Snacks, candy and refreshments will also be available for purchase in the Lobby prior to the shows and at intermission.

All performances are at the Macopin Middle School auditorium on Highlander Drive. A special free performance for West Milford senior citizens will be held on Tuesday, April 1 at 3 p.m.

Seats are on sale in the Macopin Middle School auditorium lobby on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and also available at the door beginning one hour prior to show times. Contact susan.kaczor@wmtps.org prior to show days to reserve tickets.

Come out and warm your heart and soul while supporting the local and very talented Macopin School actors and actresses, as they bring a taste of summer to a still-chilly spring in West Milford through song, dance, and fun-filled teen beach antics.
