Featuring songs from Broadway’s biggest hits of the 1960s there’s a little something for everyone in this revue. Set in the theater after their performance ended a cast of singers passionately debate what was their favorite musical and show tunes of the 60s.

As each cast member puts their candidate forward, the entire group breaks into song to celebrate the hits from their favorite show. With 4 part harmonies, laughs, and tender moments The Sensational Sixties will recall the decade that started with the “Camelot” of a Kennedy presidency and ended with change, hippies, and the hope of peace.

More concert than traditional musical, The Sensational Sixties brings together over 35 Broadway hits from Hello Dolly, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, Cabaret, Sweet Charity, Man of La Mancha, Hair, Oliver, Bye Bye Birdie, Fiddler on the Roof, and more. 

Audience members are encouraged to dress in their favorite 60s fashion.

The show includes a 15 minute intermission and concessions will be available for purchase. All performance will be at the Black Box Theatre at the Chehalem Cultural Center located at 415 E Sheridan St, Newberg, OR 97132.
