“SHOUT! The Mod Musical” will be staged at Lakewood Theater in Madison.

With an irresistible blend of hip-swiveling hits, eye-popping fashions, and outrageous dance moves, “SHOUT! The Mod Musical” recalls the music, style and freedom of the 1960s. The review follows five groovy gals as they come of age during those glorious days that made England swing.

Traveling in time from 1960 to 1970, “SHOUT!” chroncicles the dawning liberation of women, from the rise of Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark and Cilla Black as independent women with major careers, to their American counterparts, redefining themselves in the face of changing attitudes about gender. 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.”

Performances are set for 8 p.m. June 22, 23, 24, 29, 30 and July 1; 4 p.m. June 25; 2 and 7 p.m. June 28.

Tickets cost $20 in advance or $22 at the door for adults, $22/$24 for musicals, $32/$35 for cabaret seating, $17/$19 for children.
