The Taffetas is set in the 1950s. The setting allows the audience to imagine they are watching a television review featuring a group of four girls singing many of their favorite songs. The show will feature songs such as Mr. Sandman and I’m Sorry. The show was conceived by Rick Lewis. Andrew Lewis is director and choreographer. Michael Rorex is musical director.
The cast is Addie Wilson and Coryn Bourgeois of St. Amant, Alexis Beaulieu of Kingwood, Texas, and Marion Bienvenu of Baton Rouge. Beau Wilson of St. Amant is stage manager and Cory Germany of Covington is assistant stage manager.
“It’s kind of a sister show to Forever Plaid, which featured four male singers performing songs from the same era,” said Lewis. “This is an enjoyable show without a lot of dialogue with some nice light-hearted songs from the past.”
