Conceived and Directed By Thom Currie
It’s the Summer of 1973 and four old friends have snuck away from their 10th high school reunion and broken into their old hangout. As they contemplate their lives and the future, the four look back upon their high school years and remember the music of their youth. What follows is a rollicking non-stop journey through over seventy top-ten hits from 1959 through 1963. Incredible harmonies, wonderful medleys, hilarious mashups and heart stopping choreography keep the audience cheering, singing and clapping throughout the two hour show.
Back In 59 is a wonderful celebration of the biggest top-ten hits of the late fifties and early sixties, and has been a runaway hit at theatres across Ontario and Quebec since it premiered at The Showboat Festival Theatre in 2011.
"If you’re looking for a musical crowd-pleaser for your weekend date night, here is the show for you. Back In 59 is a fast-paced musical revue made up of familiar songs from the late 1950s, performed by four young dynamos with great voices."- The Montreal Gazette
"From the sublime to the ridiculous, its fabulous summer entertainment … Back In 59 is this summer’s Top of the Pops." - Hudson Journal
"A must-see!" - Welland Tribune
"Raises the roof!" - London Free Press
Back In 59 is a juggernaut revue that has sold out in theatres across Ontario and Quebec, including at Port Stanley Festival Theatre, The Hudson Village Theatre and the Showboat Festival Theatre. For tickets, visit https://magnustheatre.com/shows/back-in-59!
