DON THAT badge infested parka jacker, or that geometric patterned Mary Quant dress, get on your Vespa and head down to the Town Hall Theatre for Shout! The 60s Mod Musical.
Shout! The 60s Mod Musical - "you will feel about 20 years younger after you see it" we have been assured - takes place in the Town Hall on Friday June 1 at 8pm. A jukebox musical celebrating the 'Swinging London' era, it features songs by Petula Clark, Lulu, Dusty Springfield, Mary Hopkins, but has a contemporary message as well, marking, as it does, an era when women were redefining themselves in the face of changing attitudes about women.
The show also features hilarious sound bytes from the period – from 60s advertisements for anything and everything – to lonely hearts letters answered by Shout! magazine’s advice columnist, who thinks each girl’s problem can be solved with a “fetching new hair style and a new shade of lipstick.” The Times said the show, "captures all the exuberant innocence, camp melodrama, and soulful heartbreak of the Sixties diva songbook".
Tickets are from the Town Hall (091 - 569777, www.tht.ie ).
