Familiar names in Uwharrie Players’ musical
Published 12:00 am Thursday, October 27, 2016
ALBEMARLE – Directed and choreographed by Tod A. Kubo, with musical direction by Marc Hoffman, “SHOUT! The Mod Musical” features five groovy gals as they come of age during those glorious 1960s. The play chronicles the dawning liberation of women, from the rise of Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark and Cilla Black, to their American counterparts, redefining themselves in the face of changing attitudes. With a shimmy and shake, the songs are tied together by hilarious sound bites from the period — from ’60s advertisements to letters answered by an advice columnist who thinks that every problem can be solved with a “fetching new hair style and a new shade of lipstick.”
Cast members Hannah-Kathryn Wall and Brooke Baldwin have done recent work with Piedmont Players. Brooke was in Peter & the StarCatchers, High School Musical, Cats, Tarzan, Little Mermaid; and Hannah-Kathryn was in The Color Purple, Spamalot, Leap of Faith, High School Musical, Little Mermaid, Tarzan.
