Rangeley, ME: A nostalgic nod to London’s Swinging Sixties takes to the stage at RFA Lakeside Theater for an Encore performance of SHOUT! The Mod Musical. This popular show will return to Rangeley for two evenings on Labor Day weekend. In May, this amazing show entertained sell-out crowds. What a great way to bookend an amazing diverse RFA arts season in downtown Rangeley.
Tickets available at the Rangeley Lakes Chamber of Commerce on Park Rd. Don’t hesitate!
SHOUT! The Mod Musical is a Broadway musical by Phillip George and David Lowenstein featuring songs from the swinging sixties. The musical features five female singers who are called, Orange, Blue, Green, Yellow and Red.
The show is set in London between the early 1960s and 1970, and follows the lives of five women in their 20’s (The Red Girl), 30’s (Green, Blue, and Yellow girls) and 40’s (Orange girl) who all face tough situations, usually involving relationships. Throughout the story, all five women send letters to Gwendolyn Holmes, who works for the magazine “Shout!” in an advice column and gives them advice on how to deal with said issues.
The Yellow girl is the only American character in the show, who traveled all the way to Britain in order to see Paul McCartney. The Orange woman is shown as a full grown woman who is married, in her forties, and is starting to suspect her husband is cheating on her. The Blue girl is gorgeous and wealthy, and while she can go on and on about how perfect her life is, she does face some questions regarding her sexuality. The Green girl is a bit of a “slut” in the show, always hooking up with many men and throwing innuendos around. Finally, the Red girl is the youngest and most hopeful character; she is a bit hopeless in the beginning, stating she is not good-looking like other girls, until the man of her dreams comes along.
At: RFA Lakeside Theater in downtown Rangeley, Maine
