Got go-go boots and nowhere to wear them? Problem solved! You can channel your inner “Shindig” when “Beehive” runs at the Arts Center of Cannon County from August 12th through the 27th. Dust those boots off and head to 1424 Johnn Bragg Highway in neighboring Woodbury for a rockin’ musical celebration of the girl groups who unmistakably left their mark on 60’s music and on many of our lives. Performances are at 7:30 Friday and Saturday evenings, and Sunday afternoon matinees are at 2:00.

Through the hits of Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Diana Ross and The Supremes, the Shirelles and others, six energetic women and one very hot band take you on a journey through the look, the sounds and the electricity of the times. Told through the memories of an adult woman who recounts what her life was like from her teenage years through the days as a young woman, Beehive relives music’s golden era and an empowering time in history with “The Name Game,” “The Beat Goes On,” “Respect,” “Natural Woman,” “My Boyfriend’s Back,” “One Fine Day,” “To Sir With Love,” “It’s My Party,” “Proud Mary,” “Downtown,” and many more! “Beehive: The 60’s Musical” will leave audiences of all ages dancing in the aisles so join us for this comical and light-hearted tribute to the women of the 1960s’ that made America rock! 

Beehive is directed by Phil Mote and features Courtney Sanders, Chelsea Toombs, Natalie Madigan, Debbie Vaughn, Hannah Phillips, and Allison Barnett. This production is sponsored by The Old Feed Store Antique Mall.
