It's boy band vs. girl band in this hilarious brand-new jukebox musical featuring the exciting pop hits of the 1990's.

The show is rated PG-13.

Popstars is a high-energy musical packed with smash hits from the hyper-colored 1990's by artists such as  Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, TLC, *NSYNC, Christina Aguilera, MC Hammer, and many more. There is a contstant haze and lots of bright flashing lights.. just like being at a concert.
