“This Is The ‘60s”-A Multimedia Stage Event
Brings A Revolutionary Decade Back To Life
CROCKETT- The 20th Century’s most compelling decade will come roaring back to life in Crockett during one exciting performance on October 19 at the Crockett Civic Center. THIS IS THE ‘60s is a unique multimedia blend of live music, historical film clips, dance, fashion, and animation. More than a stage show, and much more than a concert, THIS IS THE ’60s, takes the audience on a time tunnel journey that celebrates the 50th anniversary of major milestones in news, pop culture, and music history. From the early days of the space program, through the hysteria of Beatlemania, into the darkness of the Vietnam War, and the shining optimism of the Woodstock era, THIS IS THE ’60s merges that entire turbulent decade into a cohesive and enthralling stage production.
“A rousing evening of musical nostalgia that brought the crowd to their feet dancing in the aisles – literally… a multimedia feast for the senses!… The real footage of news and events and classic television had the audience enraptured.”-David Green, Broadway World Review.
Featuring thirty-five songs from the soundtrack that united an entire generation, THIS IS THE ’60s, features the music of The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Monkees, The Mamas & The Papas, The Fifth Dimension, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Three Dog Night, Jefferson Airplane, and many more. Performed live with no pre-recorded samples, the two hour-plus show features the skill and versatility of seven seasoned performers. Their note-for-note recreations of classic songs will keep audiences captivated throughout the evening.
THIS IS THE ’60s takes the audience on a journey—one that’s designed to entertain, educate, and stimulate. J. Bryan Lake, Executive Director of Piney Woods Fine Arts says, “This groovy event is for everyone especially us baby-boomers, man!! This will be a far-out trip you do not want to miss!!”
