BEEHIVE: The ’60s Musical, conceived by Larry Gallagher packs a punch of girl power with a program full of popular 1960s hits from some of the decade’s favourite female artists. The cast of six will guide the audience through the decade of a civil rights awakening with a sampling of over 30 songs! It’s a musical tribute to the ladies who made 60s music special. Showcasing artists such as Lesley Gore, Janis Joplin, the Supremes, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner and the Shirelles. It will also feature hit songs such as My Boyfriend’s Back, Downtown, Proud Mary, One Fine Day and Piece of My Heart.

From start to finish,  Beehive celebrates the critical influence of women not only on the evolution of music but also on equality during a decade so critical to civil rights. The lyrics to the final number put an emphatic button on the message: “Make your own kind of music, even if nobody else sings along.” With the talent on stage at First Impressions, there is certainly no danger of that.
