SHOUT! opens at Annapolis Summer Garden Theater

| June 25, 2014 | 1 Comment

ASGT_Shout!_Graphic_croppedAnnapolis Summer Garden Theatre’s 2014 season continues with “SHOUT! The Mod Musical”, a musical time capsule straight out of 1960s London.  

“SHOUT!” follows five mini-skirted, go-go booted young women who wrestle with—and celebrate—changing attitudes about gender during the swingin’ 60’s.  Their stories spring to life from between the pages of their favorite (fictional) women’s magazine, whose resident advice columnist thinks every problem can be solved with a “fetching new hairstyle and a new shade of lipstick.”

As they navigate the swirling cultural vortex that is London in the 60s—including the Beatles, the pill, and women’s lib—the characters find the perfect soundtrack for their lives in such far-out tunes as “To Sir With Love,” “Wishin’ and Hopin’,” “Downtown,” “Georgy Girl,” “I Only Wanna Be With You,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” and “Goldfinger”.

“SHOUT!” is directed by Jerry Vess, an ASGT veteran returning for the eighth time.  Music director Anita O’Connor and choreographer Jason Kimmel round out the show’s artistic team.

“SHOUT!” opens Friday, June 27 and runs Thursdays-Sundays at 8:30pm through July 19.  Tickets are $20 per person and are available at www.summergarden.com.  For more information, visit the website or call 410-268-9212.

Founded in 1966, ASGT is an all-volunteer community theatre presenting its 49th season of “theatre under the stars” in downtown historic Annapolis
