Set in the 1960s, "Shout" tracks five groovy gals as they come of age during the liberating days that made England swing and features chart-topping hits such as "To Sir with Love," "Downtown," "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me," "Son of a Preacher Man," and "Goldfinger." Members of the ensemble cast include Fatima Elmi, Shani Farrell, Melissa Gates, Alison Laverdiere, Chelsea Young, Katrina Caouette, Amanda Feeley, Amanda Lawton and Olivia Ryan.
