Wisbech Grammar School present
The 60's Mod Musical
Wednesday 28th November
Thursday 29th November
Friday 30th November
The year is 1964 and follows five young female subscribers to a fictional magazine called Shout! - “the magazine for the modern woman” - as they come of age during the decade that made England swing.
Shout! travels in time through the decade, chronicling the dawn of liberation of women. Just as Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, Cilla Black and Lulu were independent women with major careers, English women were redefining themselves in the face of changing attitudes about women.
Shout! and its all-female cast reflect that change, through each girl’s unfolding story and show-stopping new arrangements of classic pop anthems of the decade, including, ‘Downtown’, ‘Son of a Preacher Man’, ‘Goldfinger’, ‘I Only Wanna Be With You’, ‘To Sir With Love’ and of course, ‘Shout!’
