Beehive: The 60’s Musical
Created by Larry Gallagher
Directed and Choreographed by Candy Brown
Musical Direction by Dr. Michael Williams
You don’t want to miss this party! Beehive is the ultimate celebration of female empowerment of the 1960s. It is the genre that really paved the way for female vocalists ranging from Diane Ross and the Supremes to Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin.
This wild and happening musical is a collection of female musicians who made the ‘60s truly memorable and will take you on a journey through the look and the feel of the times. Beehive features classic jukebox chart toppers and Aqua net coiffures, with groovy hits such as “My Boyfriend’s Back,” “Be My Baby,” and “Son of a Preacher Man.” As the music plays, there is a guarantee you will find yourself wanting to get up and do the pony, the shimmy, and the locomotion.
In the late 1950s and early ‘60s, the Beehive was considered the height of fashion. The Beehive was created by a hairdresser named Margaret Vinci Heldt who designed it to make women look taller. Beehive: The 60’s Musical nostalgically recalls the days of big hair, hot pants, and flower power.
So, tease up your hair, put on your “baby doll” top and be prepared to sing along and dance in the aisles to one of music’s truly golden eras.
Beehive: The 60’s Musical will be on stage at the Lone Tree Arts Center Wednesday, April 3rd through Saturday, April 13th. Get your tickets now before they sell out! Click here for tickets!
