Shout! The Mod Musical
A Nostalgic Nod to London’s Swinging Sixties
The musical follows five young female subscribers to a fictional magazine called Shout!, ‘the magazine for the modern woman’, as they come of age during the liberating 1960s that made England swing. From cover to cover, Shout! unfolds like a musical magazine and travels in time through the decade, chronicling the dawn of liberation of women. Just as Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, Cilla Black and Lulu were independent women with major careers, English (and indeed Irish!) women were redefining themselves in the face of changing attitudes about women. Shout! and its all-female cast reflect that change through the unforgettable music of the era. Featuring some of the top musical theatre performers Ireland has to offer, Shout! wears its heart on its sleeve, but also has its tongue firmly planted in its cheek. The groovy blend of foot-stomping songs, eye-popping fashions, bouffant hairstyles, hilarious stories and mod musings will make you want to throw your head back … and SHOUT!
