The sounds of the 1950s come back to life this August at the Historic Savannah Theatre. From August 1-24, the theatre presents their hilarious, musical, talented, exceptional, rocking, bopping, twisting show, “Return to the 50’s.”
This show will present more than sixty of your favorite songs from your favorite decade. Listen to the sounds of Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley as you can’t help but dance along to the beat. The talented cast brings to life this incredible decade of music with a rocking band, elaborate costumes, comedy antics, great dance numbers and sensational voices. A state-of-the-art sound and lighting system create the perfect backdrop to the unbelievable talent of the performers.
The Historic Savannah Theatre has been presenting shows since the early nineteenth century. Though the theatre burned down in 1948, it was rebuilt with an even more beautiful style, one that it still has today. The theatre has welcomed stars such as Fanny Davenport, Julia Marlowe, Otis Skinner, Henry Irving, Oscar Wilde, Lillian Russell, Sarah Bernhardt, Edwin Booth and more.
Other shows that are currently running include Jukebox Journey, which only takes the stage for a few more select dates, and Savannah Live, the brand new variety show. Any of these three shows, and all of the other ones the theatre presents throughout the year, is sure to be one you will never forget.
