With two dozen beloved hits, the show takes you on a journey through song, documenting the dramatic changes that America underwent during the '60s.
The cast features six talented vocalists: Alyssa Batsakis, Anne Bragg, Kimberly Maxson, Hannah Parke, Ryane Nicole Studivant, and Tasha Waters. Ben Kapilow music directs the live band, with Alec Hersh directing the show.
