Don’t miss the 1960’s summer extravaganza at the Durango Arts Center. Beehive the ‘60s Musical, by Larry Gallagher, will open Friday, June 15, and run Fridays and Saturdays, June 15 – September 1. Bring your families, lovers, and friends to a night of singing, dancing, and fun. The audience is invited to experience all the passion and vibrations of the 1960s as the cast belts out beautiful ballads and rock ‘n roll tunes. The 1960s was a time of huge hair but also radical reform. While Act I focuses on the early girl groups of the 1960s who sang of love found and lost, the social and political themed songs of Act II represents how the tone of the country changed during the final years of the decade.
There wasn’t a capacity on earth large enough to hold the dreams that were born during that era. This musical illustrates the profound influence these prolific singers had on their listeners. Janis Joplin could sing the blues so bad you thought you had a hard life, whether you did or not. She represented a new kind of freedom for women. The ‘beehive’ was history and the natural look was in.’ Towards the latter part of the decade, these women made it clear that it was time for people to make their ‘own kind of music. Feelings of empowerment and liberation are sure to arise as the audience is captivated by the aesthetic declaration of the 1960’s.
Come to the DAC theater this summer to chronicle the decade of the 1960s through girl groups like the Chiffons, the Shangri-Las, and the Shirelles to duos like Sonny and Cher to individual sensations like Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, and Janis Joplin. Whether it was a decade you lived through or one you sang along to with the radio, whether to remember memories or to make new ones, audiences of all ages can appreciate this musical revue. Cast includes Traci Lyn Thomas, Erika Beardsley, Jessica Hagemeister, Danni Lyn Parker, Jeannie Wheeldon and Rachel Pollack.
