An exuberant jukebox celebration of the music that made the 60’s truly memorable, BEEHIVE transports audiences on a nostalgic musical journey back to the days of miniskirts, transistor radios, Shindigs and flower power.

This groovy retro-revue highlights hits that range from the early sixties girl groups, to the Supremes’ memorable melodies and Aretha Franklin’s soul, to the screams of the British Invasion and Woodstock rock.

BEEHIVE looks back on the issues that the nation faces during those turbulent times civil rights, Vietnam, assassinations, the women’s movement, the generation gap all accomplished through some of the most celebrated and memorable songs of the era.

Grab your go-go boots, tease up that hair and come feel the peace, love and music!
