“SHOUT! The Mod Musical” opens February 16 at the Uptown

This Mod Musical brings back the beautiful birds and smashing sounds that made England swing in the ’60s. With its irresistible blend of hip-swiveling hits, eye-popping fashions and outrageous dance moves, SHOUT! The Mod Musical takes audiences back to the music, style and freedom of the 1960s, and features terrific new arrangements of such classic tunes as “To Sir with Love,” “Downtown,” “Son of a Preacher Man” and “Goldfinger.”

The Review follows five groovy gals as they come of age during those glorious days that made England swing. Traveling in time from 1960-1970, SHOUT! Chronicles the dawning liberation of women; with a shimmy and shake, the songs are tied together by hilarious sound bites from the period – from ’60s advertisements to letters answered by an advice columnist who thinks that every problem can be solved with a “fetching new hair style and a new shade of lipstick.”

Performances are set for February 16, 17, 23 & 24 at 8:00 pm; February 18 & 24 at 2:00 pm at the Uptown Theater – Studio Theater, 120 East Main Street, Grand Prairie, 75050.
