MAIN STAGE PRODUCTIONS

 

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 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 Winfield, 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.

 

The Glass Menagerie

November 4, 5, 6 - Helen Graham Little Theatre

Written by Tennessee Williams.

Amanda Wingfield is a faded remnant of Southern gentility who now lives in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura, who has a physical handicap and debilitating shyness. The father has left home; Tom supports his mother and sister with a shoe-factory job he finds unbearable. When Amanda convinces Tom to bring home from his workplace a “gentleman caller” for Laura, the illusions that Tom, Amanda, and Laura have each created in order to make life bearable collapse about them.

 

24-Hour Play Festival

February 10 & 11 – Richardson Performing Arts Center

A 24 hour festival in which participants will write, direct, and act in a series of short, original works...all within a 24 hour period! 

 

Merrily We Roll Along

March 31 & April 1, 2 – Richardson Performing Arts Center

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by George Furth.

Merrily We Roll Along begins in the present and moves backwards, tracing the lives of wealthy, jaded composer, Franklin Shepard, and his two estranged friends through each milestone of their personal and professional lives (good and bad). The show ends with a touch of rueful irony, as the three best friends at the start of their careers face a bright future: young, talented and enthusiastic about the worlds waiting to be conquered.
