Jukebox hits come to life in latest musical

TAKE a trip back to 1950s and 60s and the soundtracks of those generations courtesy of the talented crew at the Clarence Coast Theatrical Society as they transform into a living breathing Jukebox.

Jukebox is based on an idea by theatrical society member Bruce Bodsworth, the central theme of the production set around a reunion taking place in that appealing musical era.

The storyline unfolds in Joe's Milkbar and centres around the musical hits of that era.

The cast has gathered around enjoying the atmosphere of the cafe, each performer taking it in turns to choose a tune to play on the jukebox.

When someone puts a coin in the machine the stage comes to life and the cast belt out a song and dance with the support of a live house band.

The audience will be entertained with all those memorable hits from The Beach Boys and The Four Seasons to The Supremes, Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin and Petula Clark and more.

Audience participation is encouraged so everyone gets to join in the fun of the reunion.

You will find it hard not to sing along with the cast (and this will be encouraged).

If you really want to get into the spirit of the production feel free to dress up in your favourite 50s/60s outfits.

Tickets are $15 each and are available from Maclean Flower Box (Maclean shows), Iluka Real Estate (Iluka shows) and Yamba Bowling Club (Yamba show).

Due to the popularity of these shows, pre-booking is recommended but there will be limited tickets available at the door.

The production kicks off in Maclean this weekend.
