Book and Lyrics by Alfred Uhry
Music by Robert Waldman
Based on the novella by Eudora Welty
April 16 - 26, 2015
Directed by Danny Herman

In this super silly musical fairy tale, rascally robber Jamie Lockhart courts Rosamund, the only daughter of the richest planter in the country. The proceedings go awry thanks to a case of double-mistaken identity. Add an evil stepmother intent on Rosamund's demise, a pea-brained henchman and a hostile talking head-in-a-trunk (really!), and you have quite an adventure on your hands. Filled with bluegrass and thigh-slapping fun! Featuring Equity guests Brian Coughlin, Jarret Mallon and Meredith McCall.
