If you entered this world between 1946 and 1964, then you're a "Boomer." The accompanying term "Baby" has long since been discontinued.
Vanguard University's American Coast Theater Company celebrated this significant generation last summer with the original musical tribute "Boomers." It was so well received they're bringing it back this year, just in case you may have missed it.
This long-running San Diego musical was created by Kerry Meads and Vanguard's own Vanda Eggington. Both are very much involved in the current production, with Meads directing and Eggington performing, serving as musical director and re-creating Pamela Turner's original choreography.
It's an all-inclusive glimpse of a generation, from sitting around a black-and-white TV set watching "Howdy Doody" in the 1950s to enjoying senior citizens' discounts in the present day. In between are more than 150 songs (or snippets of) marking the signposts of the journey.
For the first part of the program, it's pretty much all nostalgic fun and games. The line of demarcation, however, is drawn on Nov. 22, 1963. From that point through the rest of the decade, the emphasis is on Vietnam War protests, race riots, drug consumption, feminist rallies and other sobering subjects.
