Cringeworthy '60s

Cringeworthy - Swinging in the '60s. A psychedelic blast from the past!

Cringeworthy is back, transporting you to the GROOVIEST era of all, the swinging ’60s! 

Following on from Cringeworthy the ’70s and ’80s, this show is a FAR-OUT tribute to Kiwiana music and culture in the ’60s. 


With just one TV channel, shows such as Let’s Go, C’Mon and Happen Inn were all the rage, with top acts such as Mr Lee Grant, Dinah Lee, The Chicks, Alison Durban and John Rowles performing a mix of local and international hits. 


Presented by our very own ‘Mod Father’ Ray Columbus and the smoothest of smooth, Pete Sinclair, Kiwis had a BLAST as a smorgasboard of songs hit the screens! Along with homegrown hits, be prepared to hear your FAB favourites from iconic overseas acts such as The Beatles, Tom Jones, Petula Clark, The Seekers, Nancy Sinatra and more, as a musical journey takes us back to a time so vastly different to today. 


If you’re SWITCHED ON then TUNE IN, break out your Beehives and Beatleboots and get ready to Go-Go. Do the TWIST, do the SWIM, do the DUCK, do the PONY, do whatever you like as long as you do it at Cringeworthy the ’60s. 



“A swinging affair, equal parts fast paced and hilarious!”

“Fab choreography, psychedelic costumes and a sizzlingly snazzy vocal quartet”


“Memory lane has never looked this good, forget Dancing in the Street, you’ll be dancing in your seat”

NB this show can be performed with a cast of 6 which includes 2 'go go' dancers and has also been adapted to have a cast of 4.
