"Mamma Mia" meets "Spinal Tap"!

This tells the story of The Synchronistics, an over-the-hill ABBA wannabe group that reunites after 20 years to perform at a public access TV telethon, put their differences aside, and try to save the station from going under

The Synchronistics were big in 1979

Big enough to be on Johnny Carson when their hit single "Better Together" rose to number two on the Billboard Charts

Then something terrible happened that drove the group apart

And now, 20 years later, they're back together in Maple Valley, their home town, to perform at the WKLN public access TV Telethon

Will they overcome their differences from 20 years ago, act professionally and help save WKLN from going under?

But you never know what to expect when this dysfunctional group gets together ... one last time

The Characters ... LANCE - Hyper, overly enthusiastic fan of The Synchronistics and host of the WKLN TV telethon

CARL - Not the brightest bulb in the box. He's had a little too much hippie lettuce in the past

PEGGY - Wholesome, shy. Just slightly smarter than Carl. Performs in the shadow of Mindy

BARRY - Mindy's ex-husband. Cheated on her which led to the group's break-up. Wrote most of their songs, not very self-aware

MINDY - The Stevie Nicks figurehead of the group. Scorned and bitter from Barry's affair

"Be sure to check out this toe-tapping, hilarious journey back to your "Dancing Queen" days! ... This show will take you back to the 70's, and you'll hardly be able to control your urge to get up on stage and do "The Funk Train!" ~ Actors Entertainment

"Audience members laughed uncontrollably throughout! ... Energetically entertaining! ... A rollicking good time! I loved it!" ~ Fred Willard, The Tolucan Times
