The ‘60s will come roaring back to life during a one-night multi-media blend of live music, historical film clips, dance, fashion and animation on Saturday, Oct. 19 in Crockett.
The Pineywood Fine Arts Association show “This is the ‘60s” will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Crockett Civic Center.
“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 PWFAA news release said.
Featuring 35 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 seven seasoned performers.
“This is the ‘60s’ takes the audience on a journey — one that’s designed to entertain, educate, and stimulate,” PWFAA Executive Director J. Bryan Lake said. “This groovy event is for everyone especially us baby-boomers, man. This will be a far-out trip you do not want to miss.”
Tickets for this show start at $32 and are available online at www.pwfaa.org. or by calling the Piney Woods Fine Arts Assoc. office at 936-544-4276 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This show is sponsored by Callaway Allee Funeral Home & Dean Insurance Agency and presented by the Piney Woods Fine Arts Association in association with KIVY/KMVL, Houston County Courier, The Messenger and County Life magazine.
