Our heroine, Cindy, is working in a laundromat in the 1960s. Poor lovelorn Cindy is still pining for the pen-pal fiance who dumped her. But her life is forever changed when her two guardian angels (not just one - but two!) magically appear to teach her about boys, true love and surviving her tough, “fluff-n-fold” kind of world.
“Suds: The Rockin’ 60s Musical Soap Opera,” opens July 11 at Raue Center For The Arts, and it’s loaded with good...ahem...“clean” fun, and “bubbling” energy. (Oh, we just can’t help ourselves.)
Whether you’re a baby boomer or not, you’ll enjoy more than 40 musical favorites from the 60s, including, “Where the Boys Are,” “These Boots are Made for Walkin’,” “Respect,” “I Feel Good,” “Walk On By” and “Don’t Make Me Over.”
If you gravitate toward the music of the Beatles, Burt Bacharach, James Brown, Neil Sedaka, girl groups, Motown and pop culture of the 60s, you’ll love this show.
Presented by Raue Center’s own Williams Street Repertory, “Suds, The Rockin’ 60s Musical Soap Opera,” stars Kim Shriver, Amanda Flahive, Amy Ferraro and Christopher Davis. Directed by Mark R. Mahallak
