Shout! is a feel-good musical featuring more than 30 of the biggest pop hits of the 60s. Celebrating the fabulous, hazy days of swinging London, Shout! is an affectionate reminder of the time when hippies were in the news, students took part in sit-ins, the Beatles conquered the world, the first man walked on the moon, Top Of The Pops was born, England won the World Cup and short skirts and beehives were all the rage.
Shout!, which follows three girls as they arrive to try their luck in the big smoke at the start of the most exciting decade ever, is set to a soundtrack of tunes including Downtown, Son Of A Preacher Man, I Only Wanna Be With You, I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself, Wishin’ And Hopin’, You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me, To Sir With Love, These Boots Are Made For Walking and the title track.
Shout! stars Su Pollard, who is most famous for playing Peggy in Hi De Hi! However she is a stage regular with recent credits including Menopause The Musical, The Vagina Monolgues and tours of Annie The Musical and The Pirates Of Penzance.
