Paramount Players Present Beehive


   The Paramount Players will present a free socially-distanced performance of BEEHIVE: The 60s musical on Friday, September 11 at 7:00 pm and Saturday, September 12 at 3 p.m. at Ashland Central Park.

   BEEHIVE 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 a group of 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 features Michelle Grubb, Elizabeth Hensley, Lisa Vititoe, Melanie Porter, Sarah Brehm, Serena Johnson, Tatum Rooker, Paige Fraley, Kelsey Bender and Hailey Browning.  It is directed and choreographed by Melanie Cornelison-Jannotta with music direction by Mark Baker.  The crew includes stage manager Allison Keesee, assistant stage manager Bruce Dearfield and costumer Rick Payne.

   This show is fun for the whole family so bring your lawn chair or a blanket and get ready to dance and sing along with the sounds of the 60s.  The audience will be socially distanced and masks are required while up and moving around.  Refreshments are available by donation.  All proceeds go to support the Paramount Arts Center education program.  In case of rain the performance will be moved to the Paramount Arts Center.

   This performance is made possible through special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide and support from the Kentucky Arts Council and The Foundation for the Tri-State.
