The Death of Skankin Pete

In the year 2007, a ska revival swept the Hudson Valley, Long Island, New Jersey and (it was rumored) California. In a small commuter town of no consequence, Kelly, a high school student, is shocked to find out anyone had ever heard of ska. Her father, Rick, is a trombone player whose glory days were in the late 80's playing in the famous ska band, The Docs. When his first band gets in touch with him to reunite, all parties meet at the Streetlight Manifesto concert, hoping to see the legendary (and supernatural?) Skankin Pete. 

A celebration of this stupid music genre, THE DEATH OF SKANKIN PETE is an immersive theatrical experience that brings the contemporary ska scene to unwitting patrons.
