The Metropolis Performing Arts Center presents SHOUT! The music mod

YELL! The Mod Musical is a tribute to the dynamic and independent singers of the 60s at the Metropolis Performing Arts Center from April 28 to June 11, 2022.

An irresistible array of powerhouse songs, distant fashion and groovy dance moves, SHOUT! The Mod Musical transports audiences to the 1960s. This musical revue features arrangements of hits from the decade, including To Sir with Love, Downtown, Son of a Preacher Man, Windy and other classics. YELL! follows five British women as they navigate the decade, recounting the dynamics of the 60s like leafing through a music magazine. A tribute to the dynamic and independent singers of the time with Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, Cilla Black and many others who helped redefine society’s attitudes towards the genre. Get out your tie-dye t-shirts and flared jeans and get ready to sing and dance along to SHOUT! has all the vintage nostalgia you’ve been looking for.
