Music flashback to the ’60s

Campbell River's Shoreline Musical Theatre Society presents "Come Fly With Me" on March 15-17 at the Tidemark Theatre

Vocal director Kristy Miller motivates the cast during a rehearsal for Shoreline’s upcoming musical revue.

I’ll Never Fall in Love Again, Comedy Tonight, Aquarius – these are a sampling more than 20 songs that audience members will enjoy at “Come Fly With Me.”

Shoreline Musical Theatre Society is inviting Campbell River to join in their nostalgic look at the music of the 1960s and early 1970s.  The upcoming production, running March 15-17, features music from well known shows such as Godspell, Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar.

The musical numbers range from jazz to rock to ballad, from solos to large ensemble dance numbers.

“We have almost 30 cast members,” said vocal director Kristy Miller, “and it is going wonderfully. The group numbers are coming together very nicely. And we have some fabulous soloists. I’m very happy with the ensemble numbers – they range from charming to powerful to comedic.”

Heather Gordon Murphy, director/choreographer, is also pleased with how the show is developing.

“The basic movement is coming together nicely,” said Murphy, “and we are getting ready to start staging the larger numbers. The artistic technical team is also starting up.”

The show is a snapshot of the 1960s told through song (mostly in the musical theatre genre), images, dance and costumes.

“People who lived through the ‘60s will recreate their memories.  Those who didn’t will see what it was like,” Murphy added.

The show will have period costumes – largely vintage – and they range from housewives to hippies.

Audience members coming to the opening night performance are encouraged to dress in the 1960s style fashions.

The show runs at the Tidemark Theatre. All shows start at 8 p.m., with a matinee performance on March 17 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $25, available at the Tidemark Theatre box office or call 250-287-PINK.
