Show Description:

Journey into the Appalachian Mountains in this award-winning musical that deftly weaves six traditional tales and original music into a keepsake quilt of mountain lore and wisdom for the whole family. Three “Jack tales” feature the resourceful, clever Jack who climbs a wonder-bean tree to find giants in the sky, who lands himself a job despite his foolishness and who wins the heart of Featherflight, the magical daughter of a devilish trickster. “Catskins” is a spunky Appalachian Cinderella. “The Enchanted Tree” is a beauty-and-the-beast love story between a lost girl and a frightening crow. And in a zany, sung-through “Sow and Her Three Pigs” plucky Nancy the pig outsmarts the hungry fox. This musical play incorporates singing, mountain dances, music and giant puppets to create a highly theatrical storytelling style. The score, which interweaves music throughout the tales, is inspired by “Old Time” Appalachian music featuring fiddle and banjo that drives the play’s action and makes music itself a character in the play.

Show Dates/Rehearsal Schedule:

SING DOWN THE MOON runs January 23rd through the 26th, with performances on Thursday & Friday at 7:30 PM, Saturday and Sunday at 4:00 p.m. Rehearsal schedules are generally two or three evenings during the week, and a weekend afternoon.  All cast members are expected for all performances, with no exception since the company does not cast understudies.

About Our STUDIO SERIES:

The Studio Presentation Series initiated in the fall of 2009 has succeeded in engaging both patrons and artists.  Targeted for specific-aged audiences rather than the wide-reaching family fare of the Main Stage, the series provides community artists with a unique opportunity to participate in the creative process of “trying out” new, more experimental works under the direction of emerging professional artists. This program allows our company to both cultivate new talent and challenge audiences.
