(BEACH HAVEN, NJ) -- Surflight Theatre is currently presenting the hilarious musical comedy, Disaster! from August 22 - September 3, 2023.  The play takes place in 1979, and New York's hottest A-listers are lining up for the opening of a floating casino and discotheque. What begins as a night of boogie fever quickly changes to panic as the ship succumbs to multiple disasters, such as earthquakes, tidal waves and infernos. Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

This is a new musical straight from Broadway, featuring some of the most unforgettable songs of the '70s. "Knock on Wood," "Hooked on a Feeling," "Sky High," "I Am Woman" and "Hot Stuff" are just a few of the scintillating hits in this hilarious musical comedy. It comes from the unusual mind of Sirius XM Broadway Channel’s (and Surflight Alum) Seth Rudetsky. Whatever it is, the way you tell your story online can make all the difference.

Tickets: Adults/Seniors- $43.00; Children 12 and Under- $33.00. Tickets are available for purchase online or by calling (609)492-9477. Group pricing available.
