Creative Cauldron Presents Washington, DC Area Professional Premiere
SHOUT! THE MOD MUSICAL
Creative Cauldron joins the 50th anniversary celebration of the British invasion, with SHOUT! The Mod Musical, a hip-swiveling tribute to England's female pop divas of the swinging 60s. Five groovy gals sing a medley of infectious and soulful pop anthems that made household names of Petula Clark, Cilia Black, Dusty Springfield and Lulu, including: "To Sir With Love," "Downtown," "These Boots are Made for Walking," "Son of a Preacher Man," "Goldfinger" and the title song. Their journey from the pre-feminist 1960s into the liberated 1970s is chronicled through true confessions, popular advertisements and their hopeful correspondence with a fictional SHOUT! Magazine advice columnist.
Creative Cauldron's production, directed by Matt Conner and choreographed by Stephen Gregory Smith, plays at ArtSpace Falls Church from May 2 through 25. Curtain times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 2:00pm and 7:00 pm. PRESS NIGHT IS SUNDAY, MAY 4 AT 7:00 PM. www.creativecauldron.org
