story created by Richard J. Robin

book by Bruce Vilanch

directed by Gabriel Barre

choreographed by JoAnn M. Hunter

November 28–December 23, 2018

The year is 1965, when women’s liberation, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Vietnam War dominate headlines. The pulse of a changing era lures Cindy from Middle America to the swirl of New York where she pursues her passion of making a difference in the world amidst unexpected friends, lovers, careers, and conflicts. Featuring classic hits from that era, including “Downtown,” “If I Can Dream,” “The Boy from New York City,” and “You Don’t Own Me,” this show interweaves the story of a woman coming into her own in a dynamic and sometimes turbulent world with the music of Petula Clark and other hit-makers of the day. Together, they are “A Sign of the Times!”​
