Auditions for “Ring of Fire”

Auditions will be held on April 30 & May 1 for “Ring of Fire” which will be performed June 20– July 1.

Plot & History
The musical is made up of some of the most famous songs from the Johnny Cash songbook. The plot roughly follows Johnny’s biography from his origins as a “Country Boy” to becoming the “Man in Black”. The show uses the music of Cash to explore some of the pivotal moments in his life. While there is some dialogue, the show is mostly songs. The show includes memorable Cash songs including “My Name is Sue”, “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Daddy Sang Bass”, and of course, “Ring of Fire”. The Original Broadway Cast was larger, but this smaller 5-person version is more intimate. You can find more details about the show at the Wikipedia page. Continue reading

Last chance to donate to the Resinski Green Room!

In conjunction with Bonnie Resinski’s revival of “Silhouettes” in September 2015, Cresson Lake Playhouse is wrapping up a special appeal fund drive to renovate the Green Room at the barn.  All proceeds from “Silhouettes” and from the special appeal campaign will support the renovation project.  Work is now underway and when the project is complete, we will dedicate the “Resinski Green Room” to honor Kenny and Bonnie Resinski for their role in the early success of Cresson Lake Playhouse.

Donations to the Resinski Green Room project are still being accepted and can be made here.
