Winfield: A Bluegrass Musical - Highlights/Touring Edition


Winfield: A Bluegrass Musical

September 9, 10, 11 - Richardson Performing Arts Center
(Special performance on Sept. 16 at Walnut Valley Festival)

Written by Ken Gale and Co-produced by the Walnut Valley Festival.

Set at the campgrounds during the Walnut Valley Festival, the musical tells the story of a first-time attendee who finds love, family, and himself among the strummers and pickers who inhabit the festival campgrounds. Armed with a guitar, his best friend, and a new song, Dusty encounters the ethereal Celeste and falls hard. Along the way he meets Peg and the pickers of Pirate Camp, Cookie and the Mutineer camp strummers, and the mystical musical minions who inhabit the woods by the Walnut River.

The music and script were written by Ken Gale, who has attended WVF, taken part in the NewSong Showcase, and writes musicals in his spare time. The Cast inclues Sarah McQuery as Peg, Jacob Giger as Dusty, John Moberly as Bobby, Seth Bate as Cookie, Maya Damron as Celeste and Jenny Muret Bate, Jordan Burford, Allison Hughes, David Hughes, Mary Jarvis, Gail Ranger, Seaf Bate and Chris Rogers as Campers at the Festival.


Since this "Highlights/Touring Edition" performance is part of the 50th Annual Walnut Valley Festival, tickets must be purchased through the Walnut Valley Festival Association.
