A Falling Star at Buzzard’s Roost is a light-hearted musical comedy that follows hard-touring retro-Rockabilly band Maureen & the Mercury 5 from a kitschy, Alabama Drive-Inn Diner (off-season) through a wormhole in time.

The reluctant time-travelers find love and learn life lessons as they struggle to get back to present day.

A Falling Star at Buzzard’s Roost is a sweet, high-energy show that blends the silly and the sweet with song & dance, heralding back to the ridiculous charm of The Monkees and the retro romance of Elvis movies.
