About the Show

Troubadour Theater Company
Written by Rick Batalla and Henry Phillips
Directed by Matt Walker

Do you crave some good, old-fashioned police work where men in overly tight uniforms dance, sing and catch the bad guys? Look no further! Take a journey down the 405 Freeway circa the 1970s when highways were hopping and surface streets were for sissies - when you could get from Downtown to the Westside in 20 minutes, and not just in a Toyota. There you'll find those super-flashy stewards of safety and suave-ness, Ponch and John, in CHiPS the Musical. Rest assured, Ponch and John are still wearing their well-starched uniforms, packin' the heat, and looking fine enough to cause a fender-bender while battling criminals of the worst kind: female eco-terrorists sporting roller skates and short shorts! The Boys on Bikes are Back…and this time, they're singing!
