Be Bop A Lula is a Doo Wop and Be Bop Show with our live stage band and acting scenes with dance routines. Just opened in 2013 with near sellout crowds. Lula is the new girl at school who is from down in the boondocks. She's just a rag doll from the poor side of town. Johnny is the cool guy who runs the local "Bee Clean" car wash. He and his gang of "Bee Girls" don't care much for the square kids until Johnny falls for Lula. But what will Johnny's Bee Girls think of Lula? Charmin runs the local Drive In Diner and her boyfriend Wimpy loves hamburgers. Charmin takes the girls to visit her cousin down in Tupelo and he fixes Lula and her friends up so Johnny has to take notice on their return. This show has lots of Doo Wop and Be Bop songs performed by the carwash band as the story is being told. Lula may not think Johnny is the boy for her, but he's sure the boy she loves. As a special attraction for this production, Sunset Cruisers will have a special Cruise-In of classic cars parked on the downtown streets prior to the show.
