BEEHIVE - The 60s Musical

A Celebration of Female Empowerment

June 5 to June 23, 2024

Created by Larry Gallagher

Flower power meets girl power in BEEHIVE, a musical celebration of the most powerful and iconic female voices of the 1960s. 

Told from the perspective of six women who come of age in this enigmatic decade, BEEHIVE takes audiences on a nostalgic journey through timeless hits of the era such as “My Boyfriend’s Back,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” “Natural Woman,” “It’s My Party,” “Where the Boys Are,” and “You Don’t Own Me.” From Leslie Gore to Janis Joplin, the Shirelles to the Supremes, and Aretha Franklin to Tina Turner, this toe-tapping production features 40 classic chart-toppers that will put a song in your heart and leave you dancing in the aisles.

Join us for this uplifting and upbeat salute to female empowerment.

Recommended for ages 10 and up.

Running Time: 1 hr and 50 minutes, including 15 min intermission


I loved every minute of Beehive. The music transported me back to my youth, and really captured the feeling of the times... The singing was excellent! Thanks Drayton Entertainment!!!
