When you think of the ’60s, what comes to mind? While counterculture and the civil rights movement were on the rise, there was also a revolution in modern music—with many generation-defining hits made by female singers.

Whether you lived through the ’60s or want to learn more about it, Beehive: The 60’s Musical is an entrancing theatrical journey for all ages. You won’t be able to stop yourself from tapping your feet to the music, or better yet, getting out of your seat to move and groove.

Told from the perspective of seven young women who come of age in this enigmatic decade, you’ll laugh, dance and leave inspired.

“If you love the queens of the ’60s, a little soul, funk and pop then you won’t want to miss Beehive. You will enjoy every bit of this show as these performers reminisce the greats of the decade!”

From their first Beehive Dance to the challenges faced as a nation, this musical is not only fun to experience but also takes you through important trials and tribulations from the time—some of which have lasted to this day.

Carl Dean is the director behind this lively production, along with many other fantastic shows at Virginia Samford Theatre.

Beehive transports us back to a time that is indelibly linked to our collective consciousness. This enduring music, with its multi-generational appeal stirs up nostalgia even in those of us who may not have been around when these songs first hit the airwaves. The soul, narrative and heartbeat of these songs is woven through the very fabric of our American musical tapestry, and in it one can rediscover and identify with the hope, longing and sense of change that was so alive in the ’60s.”

Are iconic songs like Natural Woman, My Boyfriend’s Back and One Fine Day on your go-to playlist? Get ready to sing along. Matching big voices with big hairdos, the soundtrack for Beehive is unbeatable.

“Audiences will be drawn to this production because obviously, the music is awesome! These songs span a whole decade and reflect the changing of the times, and it’s a lot of fun to go on that journey through a decade. It is also interesting that some of the issues that were prevalent in the 1960s are still happening today, and the music definitely helps reflect that.”

Need more reasons to attend? Take it from the incredible cast who worked on the show, Beehive is a production you don’t want to miss! PS: You have full permission to get up and dance along during the show.

“There’s so much nostalgia within this show with some amazing throwback classics, but everyone brings their own fun, unique touch to their performances. It also shows young women growing up in a time that their parents don’t fully understand while finding their own path, which I believe can resonate with many people. This is a show for everyone!”
