4-7 March, 2017 Adelaide Fringe
‘All the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey’,
‘Monday, Monday – so good to me’
‘Dream a little dream of me’
You know the songs and you love the music, but how well do you know the iconic American pop group behind it all?
They sold nearly 40 million records worldwide and were the first group to knock The Beatles from the number one spot on the Billboard charts.
They are The Mamas and The Papas.
flowerchildren, the exciting Green Room Award Winning musical tells the turbulent story of The Mamas and The Papas, and explores the distrust, dangerous passions, and complex entanglements that lay behind their spectacular rise to fame.
With unforgettable melodies and tight vocal harmonies, flowerchildren features a score of the group’s timeless hits including Words of Love, Monday Monday, Dedicated to the One I Love, Creeque Alley (A.K.A. No one’s getting’ fat ‘cept Mama Cass), and the iconic California Dreamin’
Presented by DAVINE INTERVENTIONZ (Directed by David Gauci, Musical Direction Emma Knights and Choreography by Shenayde Wilkinson-Sarti; the South Australian Team behind the multi award winning 2014 Adelaide Fringe hit ‘Xanadu”), and written by AFI Award winner PETER FITZPATRICK; flowerchildren is built upon a catalogue of the biggest hits for The Mamas and The Papas.
If you remember the 1960’s, grab your peace jewelry and love beads, ‘be sure to wear some flowers in your hair’, and in Adelaide Fringe 2015, make your own kind of music and head down to Star Theatre One from March 4 for 5 shows only. This will be a unique chance to re-live the era of flower power , psychedelic colours, bell bottom jeans, and the brave new world of free love, drugs and rock and roll.
If you weren’t there at the time, this is your chance to take a wild and wonderful ride with the group whose music defined a generation.
