EDDIE AND THE PALACEADES is an all original rock and roll musical about a 60s era band from Waterbury, CT who opened for the Beatles on their 1966 American Tour then sacrificed their musical hopes and dreams to raise their kids.

Our hero is a one hit wonder from the 60s who steps up to fight the pay to play politics of the 90s in order to save the Palace Theater.

A little bit “Rock of Ages”, a little bit “Great American Trailer Park Musical”.

It’s a roller coaster ride of laugh out loud and tug at your heart moments with hit songs you can sing and want to remember.
