Back in 59

Thousand Islands Playhouse, Gananoque
Directed and Choreographed by Stephanie Graham

Conceived by Thom Currie, Back In 59 is a wonderful celebration of the biggest top-ten hits of the late fifties and early sixties, and has been a runaway hit at theatres across Ontario and Quebec since it premiered at The Showboat Festival Theatre in 2011. Incredible harmonies, wonderful medleys, hilarious mashups and heart stopping choreography keep the audience cheering, singing and clapping throughout the two hour show.

Stephanie directed and choreographed both productions at Thousand Islands Playhouse in 2021 & 2022.

“The choreography by Stephanie Graham heats up the performance … By the second act, it seemed that no one in the swaying, humming, toe-tapping audience was sitting still.” -St Lazare Gazette, Montreal

“Under the direction of Stephanie Graham, the production feels completely at home on the large proscenium stage, offering ample space and orientation for dynamic choreography, compelling still imagery and the slick movement of scenery.” -Will Britton, Kingston Whig-Standard
