A One Night Only Presentation Of The Swingin’ 60s Musical Benefiting Amas Musical Theatre and TDF
SHOUT! follows five fab gals on a high-energy, hip-shaking, non-stop vibrant trip through the Swingin’ 60s that gave birth to such hits as “Downtown,” “To Sir With Love,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” and “Georgy Girl” — songs that express the changing attitudes and dawning liberation of women. This fun-filled musical is an irresistible blend of foot-stomping songs, eye-popping fashions and psychedelic dancing that will make you want to throw your head back and SHOUT!
