Schools to present ‘GO-GO Beach’

Clarksville High School and Clarksville Middle School students are bringing the beach to Collins Auditorium at Clarksville High School for this year’s fall production of “GO-GO Beach.”

“GO-GO Beach,” a new musical written in 2006 as part of the New York City Musical Theatre Festival, follows the adventures of 10 friends and the changes in their lives as well as the 1960s culture they live every day.

This coming-of-age story follows a surfer who gets into trouble with his girlfriend when he falls for a runaway teen pop star and his relationship with a flower child who helps him find the true meaning of love. The play, a parody of the Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello early 1960s beach movies, features an original score inspired by the surf sound, girl groups and go-go music.

The show runs Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 1-3 and Nov. 8-10. All shows start at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $9 for adults, $6 for senior citizens and students.

For more information, call 812-987-6814.
