PROGRAMMING NOTES

The licensed version is based on the mid-1980s creation by the late Larry Gallagher. This version is not based on any particular professional production.

Orchestrated for a small 6 piece band, this show is player-conducted from the Piano/Conductor chair. The PC/Keyboard 1 book does have some light programming throughout although there are many moments where the songs are just conducted without any piano or patches. In addition to the acoustic piano patches, the other patches are various B3 Hammond Organ presets, and strings. Although there are quite a few patches that just go back and forth between piano and organ, if you have a modern MIDI keyboard with good onboard sounds, you could easily program the sounds on the hardware itself, however if you would prefer an authentic MainStage file with everything exactly where it appears in the score, feel free to order it using the form below.

SHOW DESCRIPTION

BEEHIVE – The ‘60s Musical is a loving, rockin’ celebration of that era’s powerful female voices whose music stands the test of time – including Diana Ross, Janis Joplin, Carole King, Aretha Franklin, and Tina Turner! With over two dozen timeless hits, including “It’s My Party,” “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?,” “Where the Boys Are,” and “You Don’t Own Me,” the show takes you on a song-filled journey told from the perspective of six women coming of age during this unforgettable time, taking us from their first Beehive Dance through a decade of change. Not a jukebox musical but a music revue, “Beehive” flies through all or part of 40 songs—two written for the show and the rest of them spanning the eclectic array of popular female performers of the 1960s.

Created in the mid-1980s by the late Larry Gallagher, “Beehive” runs chronologically, from beehive hairdos and long skirts to free-flowing hair and hippie fashions. The music shifts dramatically as well, from early girl groups (the Chiffons, the Shirelles, the Supremes) to the solo work of Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, and Aretha Franklin.
