|Only The Beginning - Songs That Started Something is STAG's next end of year revue that will rock the socks off everyone who attends. Bookings open on 31st August for this fabulous rock revue which will be presented at the Eastbank Centre on 1,2,3,8,9,10 of November at 7:30pm. The show will have you remembering the moments in time, the legends, and of course the songs that were only the beginning; that started something - be it a fad, trend or an era that will live on for years to come.
The show will consist of three entertainment packed acts full of non stop songs that will have the crowds reminiscing and singing along.
Act One will transcend time and float in and out of eras as we take a look at songs that spoke of love, life and fun and will end with a spectacular medley of songs by our junior members. You'll be treated so songs such as The Things We Do For Love, Children Of The Revolution, I Love Rock And Roll and Brick In The Wall - to name a few.
You'll get a little break, time for a drink and some nibbles and Act Two will take off and send you on a trip with wild women, rock chicks, and women of substance who include Bette Midler, Aretha Franklin and Pink. You'll also hear the great protest songs: songs like Turn Turn Turn and My Generation that are still relevant today and you hear a tribute to the fabulous Glam band, Sweet.
And as if that isn't enough, after another short refreshment break, Act Three will present the icons that have contributed to the shaping of the music industry - legends such as Billy Idol, David Bowie, Tina Turner, Madonna, The Bee Gees and of course The Beatles and many more with songs such as White Wedding, Nutbush City Limits, Golden Years and so on.
Only The Beginning - Songs That Started Something will certainly hit the stage with a blast. Directed by Liz Zito, musically directed by Carmen Allemand, with Maureen Collins debuting as Production Manager and Sue Meeking as Assistant Director, Only The Beginning - Songs That Started Something will look at performers that began crazes in music and fashion and songs that "struck a chord" in their times. Tributes to classic rock chicks, the Glam look, the protest era, the icons, and much much more will combine to make a jam-packed program of entertainment for you to enjoy. The show is choreographed by Tanya Bowen, Kyla McGregor, Sam Chambers and Dani Goudie and each of them will bring a certain style and pizazz to the show with great dance numbers included.
So don't delay - get those tickets booked nice and early. Rumour has it that people will once again be lining up for tickets to this rock spectacular. It's almost becoming a tradition...how exciting!!!
