ABOUT THE SHOW
Hockadoo! Huey Calhoun, a local boy with a passion for music desperately wants to bring Soul, R&B and Rock & Roll music to southern white audiences during the early 1950’s. Felicia Farrell is an aspiring black singer who performs under the watchful eye of her overprotective brother in his underground night club. When Huey and Felicia connect over their shared love of music, dreams and ambitions they are faced with objections from not only their families but the world around them. Can music transcend race?
