The Times, They Are A-Changin’, November 2010
Lyric’s Fall 2010 show, The Times, They Are A-Changin’, a 1960s folk revue, created and eirected by Ryan Hicks, ran November 3-7, 2010, in a new venue for Lyric, the Artesian on 13th.
The show played to enthusiastic, hand-clapping singing-along audiences, and featured Andrea Armstrong, Brittany Soriano, Carolyn Speirs, Dwayne Bechtold, Nathan Sgrazzutti, Rob Armstrong and Ron Blechinger.
The synopsis: It’s the 1960s. North America is coming out of 1950s into the hopes and dreams of a new decade. With the baby boomers representing a majority of the population, a “sea-change” is occurring in ideals and consciousness. Young people are getting together and standing up for what they feel is right. From the civil rights movement to peace, young people are sharing a message of love and togetherness. Everywhere you look you can read the signs.
The music of this time tells the story. Our story takes us from folkies such as Joan Baez all the way to Woodstock. Along the way we remember, learn, teach, love, and even laugh.
