SHOUT! is the mod musical magazine that brings back the beautiful birds and smashing sounds that made England swing in the 60's. Created by Phillip George and David Lowenstein, SHOUT! features terrific new arrangements of such classic tunes as "To Sir With Love," "Downtown," "Son of a Preacher Man," and "Goldfinger."
SHOUT! travels in time from 1960 to 1970 chronicling the dawning liberation of women. Just as Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, and Cilla Black, were independent women with major careers, English and American women were redefining themselves in the face of changing attitudes about gender. SHOUT! (and its all-female cast) reflects that through the unforgettable music of the time. With a shimmy and shake, the songs are tied together by hilarious sound bites from the period -- from 60's advertisements to letters answered by an advice columnist who thinks every problem can be solved with a "fetching new hair style and a new shade of lipstick."
The songs in this delightful musical resonate with a timeless quality which appeals to every generation. A wonderful choice to showcase strong, female talent at any community theatre, high school, or college.
