Peril is coming to the kingdom of Arcadia. At risk of losing its beat, a symbol of prosperity generations in the making, the royal family takes on a lively journey to save their kingdom. Together they discover the answer lies in love, acceptance, and dancing to the rhythm of one’s own heart. Set to the fabulous music of the 1980s, all-female rock band The Go-Go’s, this progressive love story will have audiences laughing and dancing in their seats.
