The event features company member Kristi Szczepanek as host, and presents song stylings by other company members, including Anna Schutz, plus some special guests.

Here is “The Runaways” plot description:
“The Runaways” follows two friends – Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) – as they rise from rebellious southern California kids to rock stars of the now-legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl bands. They fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon) who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits.
With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself and so do its two leads. Joan is the band’s pure rock ’n roll heart while Cherie (with her Bowie-Bardot looks) is the sex kitten.
