Local legend Red Robinson was just 16 when he began his career as a DJ at radio station CJOR, playing hits by the likes of Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly. Inspired by Robinson’s early days, Red Rock Diner follows the young DJ and five singing, dancing teenagers against a toe-tapping backdrop of 1957 hit music, everything from “Diana” to “Great Balls of Fire.” See the lively musical until Aug. 23 at the Granville Island Stage.
