A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE WOMEN oF ROCK 1960 - 1970

THE PLAY

 The 60's Musical is the ultimate celebration of 1960's female empowerment. Featuring such timeless classics as "My Boyfriend's Back", "Be My Baby", "Son of a Preacher Man", and "Me and Bobby McGee", Beehive nostalgically recalls the days of miniskirts, transistor radios and flower power. Told from the perspective of six young women who came of age in this enigmatic decade, these young ladies look back on a host of issues ranging from their first Beehive Dance to the challenges we faced as a nation - a theme that is even now resonating in the 21st century.

Songs Include The Name (New) Game, Natural Woman, Deep, Mountain High (Deeman), My Boyfriend's Back, One Fine Day, To Sir With Love, It's My Party, Proud Mary, Where The Boys Are, Make Your Own Kind Of Music

Libraries Santa Cruz Public
This year's theme, A UNIVERSE OF STORIES, was chosen to help inspire children of all ages to dream big, believe in themselves,
Date: Every day (Jun 1-Aug 10)


The Santa Cruz Public Libraries' (SCPL) Summer Reading Program, A UNIVERSE OF STORIES, begins June 1st and runs through August 10th. Our entire program has been revamped this year in order to be more inclusive and to put an even greater focus on reading. Studies have shown that reading just 5 books over the summer can significantly reduce Summer Slide - a term for the learning loss experienced over the summer.

 

This year's theme, A UNIVERSE OF STORIES, was chosen to help inspire children of all ages to dream big, believe in themselves, and create their own story. It also celebrates the richness of perspectives that arise when we include stories from diverse people. And finally, we celebrate 50 years of space exploration and the anniversary of the lunar landing.

 

We are excited to present 3 SUMMER READING KICKOFF EVENTS to celebrate the beginning of the new program. Bring your picnic blankets, chairs, and lunches for these free family events:

  • A Universe of Stories with Nikki Borodi   Start summer off on Sunday June 9th 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the Duck Island Stage in San Lorenzo Park.

  • Coventry & Kalusa  Join us for some fun in the sun and sign-up for summer reading while playing with bubbles, hula hoops and more on Saturday June 15th at Anna Jean Cumming Park (AKA Blueball Park) from 11 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. From 12-1 p.m. enjoy a special performance by award winning circus artists Coventry and Kaluza.
