1972: The Musical
“1972: The Musical”
30th Anniversary benefit for the Margaret Sloss Women’s Center
Join the Margaret Sloss Women’s Center for a musical romp back in time to 1972. America was immersed in the jungles of Vietnam as second-wave feminists fought their own battles at home.
“1972”, written and directed by Clark Ford, is a three-act musical about a family facing change. The father, played by David Michael, is a humorous conservative with a penchant for Archie Bunker. The mother, played by Jo Self, holds the family together but yearns to go back to school and then gets a job outside of the family. Bob, the college-aged son, played by Clayton Johnson, is in a fraternity and is pursuing the American Dream. Lindsey Allen plays the college-aged daughter studying feminism. She really begins to question the religion and patriarchy in which she was raised. Alysa Mozak plays the part of Janice, a free-loving hippie who is going back to school, and it turns out both Bob and Marnie are attracted to her…
