Based on a true story.
Back together after 20 years! That girl group from the sixties everyone loves is bringing back the sun, fun and all the great songs they sang down on the boardwalk at the Jersey Shore… all to raise money for the good folks at Sandy Shores Mobile Home Beach Resort.
With a show that promises to get everyone dancing in the aisles, THE BIKINIS, or “The Jersey Girls,” relive their heyday and beyond, beginning the summer of 1964, the night these four inseparable friends got their name, winning the Belmar Beach Talent Contest, wearing just their bikinis! The boardwalk was smitten with the 4 teens… Jodi and Annie, two sisters from Paramus New Jersey; Karla, their slightly manipulative first cousin from Philly; and best friend Barbara, from Staten Island.
THE BIKINIS is a nonstop celebration of song filled with hits like IT’S IN HIS KISS, YELLOW POLKA DOT BIKINI, HEAT WAVE, UNDER THE BOARDWALK, THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKIN’, INCENSE AND PEPPERMINTS, LOOK WHAT THEY’VE DONE TO MY SONG, MA, WHEN WILL I BE LOVED, I’M EVERY WOMAN, I WILL SURVIVE, IT’S RAINING MEN and many more!

In an effort to share our love of the theater arts with our community, APTCo has developed a School of Performing Arts (SODA) to help both adults and young people develop their abilities as performing artists. Numerous studies have shown that self-expression through the arts is beneficial to a child's growth and mental health. Our very-talented instructors will be offering classes in theater, voice and movement. Our instructors and teaching artists have many years of professional theater and dance training and have performed regionally in Broadway and Off-Broadway productions.
Check our calendar for up-coming SODA classes!
