BEEHIVE School Edition celebrates the powerful female voices of the 1960’s with such timeless hits as “My Boyfriend’s Back,” “Be My Baby,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” and “Me and Bobby McGee.” Told from the perspective of six young women who come of age in this enigmatic decade, Beehive takes us from their first Beehive Dance to the challenges we faced as a nation.
BEEHIVE School Edition is a large-cast version of the original 6-women script, for a high school cast of up to 28 or more (8 lead female soloists with a chorus of girlfriends and boyfriends). However, you could easily do the show with as small a cast as 10-20 girls and 1-3 boys.
BEEHIVE SCHOOL EDITION must be performed exactly in accordance with the materials provided by TRW. The songs contained in the song list in the TRW License and in the TRW performance materials are the only songs that can be in the show. The addition of any song not in the TRW licensed show, whether in whole or part, specifically Society’s Child, is a willful and intentional infringement of the copyright of the song and will subject you to legal action and punitive damages by the song’s writer and music publisher. YOU MUST PERFORM THE SHOW PRECISELY ACCORDING TO THE TRW LICENSE AND PERFORMANCE MATERIALS.
