The beach movie genre serves as target for this new Annoyance Theatre musical pitting a gang of teen surfers against an evil, summer-hating real estate developer who wants to build luxury condos on their beach. Rebecca Sohn’s production has its moments, but not enough of them. A spot-on send-up of early 60s girl-group treacle—retrofitted with filthy lyrics about lost virginity—has some of the raunchy verve of classic Annoyance shows like Co-Ed Prison Sluts, but most of the songs by Tony Mendoza and Tom Vale are incidental and forgettable.
