Bluegrass and Fall Festival BY JOHN H. WALKER :HOFRPHWR7DUERUR

some of the best bluegrass performers in the Southeast 


I

n only its second year, the Bluegrass and Fall Festival, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 21 at Indian Lake Park, will bring in some of the best bluegrass performers in the Southeast. The festival is jointly sponsored by the Edgecombe Cultural Arts Council, The Daily Southerner, The Town of Tarboro. Although just two weeks later than last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initial offering, Edgecombe Arts Director Joyce Turner said she hoped the later date would help ensure cooler weather than last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scorching heat and humidity. The show is scheduled from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. with Rose Hill Blue Grass Band playing from about 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. as festival goers arrive and also during all sound checks and intermissions. While the ever-popular Tar River Boys will return, the four headline groups are sure to get the toes tapping and hands clapping. Kevin Richardson and Cuttinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Edge (KRACE) hail from the Piedmont Triad, ranging from Winston-Salem on the north down thru Denton and Asheboro on the way to Seagrove. KRACE is Richardson on guitar and lead vocals, Scott Burgess on bass, Boyd Hulin on mandolin, Chris Ward on banjo, and Jason +LQVKDZRQĂ&#x20AC;GGOH 5HFHQWO\WKHJURXSKDVEHHQZRUNLQJRQLWVĂ&#x20AC;UVWDOOJRVSHO&' and Richardson was nominated as Songwriter Of The Year for 2013 SPBGMA (Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music Association awards. While Richardson lost out to Tom T. Hall, his talent is obvious It will be fan votes that get him the award, so you know what to do next. Over the past six month, the group has had two No. 1 songs on the Bluegrass Today charts â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;He Better Runâ&#x20AC;? last December and â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Kind of Loveâ&#x20AC;? in March. Also on the card is the all-female group from Cary â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sweet Potato Pie. Sweet Potato Pie specializes in bluegrass, country and gospel music. Playing traditional bluegrass instruments, the Pie is best known for their vocal harmonies and original music. Earning the nickname the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sweethearts of Bluegrassâ&#x20AC;?, these ladies know how to entertain. The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2012 CD, Brand New Day held on at No. 1 at AirPlay Direct (APD) for two months.

Joing KRACE and Sweet Potato Pie will be the Malpass Brothers, from Goldsboro. Christopher Malpass explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to keep country music alive . . . .

Upcoming season will showcase a variety of theatrical performances




T

ar River Playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; upcoming season will offer a variety of theatrical performances, from the Broadway musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godspellâ&#x20AC;? to the yuletide comedy â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Christmas Story.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this season we have a very good mix of content,â&#x20AC;? said Roberta Cashwell, Tar River Players founder and director/ producer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are a community theatre and therefore our mission is to provide the best quality live theatre possible to citizens of Tarboro and Edgecombe County and surrounding counties.â&#x20AC;? 7KHĂ&#x20AC;UVWVKRZRIWKHVHDVRQLV´$&KULVWPDV6WRU\ÂľDKROLday show based on the stories of author Jean Shepherd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried to make our fall show a holiday show,â&#x20AC;? Cashwell said. For a long time, she said she has wanted to do â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Christmas Story,â&#x20AC;? which has become a â&#x20AC;&#x153;classic.â&#x20AC;? The family-oriented show has a large number of young actors. The story is about a 9-year-old boy named Ralphie who wants a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s told from the standpoint of Ralphie looking back on his childhood in the post World War II/ 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s,â&#x20AC;? Cashwell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the antics the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going through leading up to Christmas that year.â&#x20AC;? Next up on the play list is the Broadway musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godspell,â&#x20AC;? This year marks the 40th anniversary of the opening of the musical. Set in New York City in the late 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s/ early â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Stephen Scwartzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godspellâ&#x20AC;? is a retelling of the Gospel according to St. Matthew, featuring Jesus Christ as a wandering minstrel dressed as a circus clown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Day by Day,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;By My Sideâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prepare Ye (The Way of the Lord)â&#x20AC;? are well-known songs in the musical. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godspellâ&#x20AC;? and the similarly themed show â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jesus Christ Superstarâ&#x20AC;? both opened in 1971 and instantly gained enormous popularity. 

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become classics in their genre, which is musicals that modernize stories in the Bible,â&#x20AC;? Cashwell said. Dawn Whitehurst and Ann Davis will direct â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godspell,â&#x20AC;? while Pat Petruzziello will be the choreographer. The show will cast Jesus and Judas as the main characters and nine other ensemble members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Deanâ&#x20AC;? will be the Playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spring show. Ann Bean will direct that show. The 1976 play by Ed Graczyck is set in a small town called McCarthy in West Texas in both 1955 and 1975. The show has a small cast of primarily women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The women were groupies, followers of the movie â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Giantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cast DQGVKRZ7KHSORWUHYROYHVDURXQGWKHUDPLĂ&#x20AC;FDWLRQRIWKHWLPH ZKHQWKH\ZHUHDOOLQYROYHGZLWKWKHĂ&#x20AC;OPLQJRIÂś*LDQW¡ÂľVDLG &DVKZHOO´-LPP\'HDQĂ&#x20AC;JXUHVLQWKHYHUVLRQÂľ &DVKZHOOUHFDOOVVHHLQJWKHSOD\LQ1HZ<RUN&LW\ZKHQLWĂ&#x20AC;UVW opened in the mid 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, featuring a â&#x20AC;&#x153;star-studdedâ&#x20AC;? cast of players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a comedy with some serious moments,â&#x20AC;? said Cashwell. The Players traditionally do one show per season featuring a large cast of characters, including children. This year, that show is â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wizard of Oz,â&#x20AC;? and the fantasy characters in the show include munchkins â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a huge cast of 47 to 83,â&#x20AC;? Cashwell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing the movie musical version with all the songs that everybody loves.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wizard of Oz,â&#x20AC;? a musical with fantastical themes, met with LWVĂ&#x20AC;UVWVXFFHVVRQ%URDGZD\LQDQGODWHUPDGHLQWRDĂ&#x20AC;OP in 1939. It was based on L. Frank Baumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s novel â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wizard of Ozâ&#x20AC;? is about a young girl (Dorothy) who longs to be somewhere other than the humdrum Midwestern farm where she lives with her aunt and uncle,â&#x20AC;? Cashwell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She thinks that life is so much better â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Somewhere Over the Rainbow.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?


After Dorothy ends up in the Land of Oz and gets a taste of life outside Kansas, she begins to get homesick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The message for all of us is that we should make the most of the opportunities that we have and value our loved ones. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a perennial favorite,â&#x20AC;? Cashwell said. Cashwell is the tentative director for â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wizard of Oz.â&#x20AC;? 7KH3OD\HUV¡Ă&#x20AC;UVWWKUHHVKRZVZLOOWDNHSODFHLQWKH0F,QW\UH Auditorium on the campus of Edgecombe Community College (ECC), while â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wizard of Ozâ&#x20AC;? will be in ECCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Keihin Auditorium because of the large size of the cast. Tickets for all shows will be available at the door. A selection committee determines what plays to do each season. Among the plays under consideration for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season are â&#x20AC;&#x153;How the Grinch Stole Christmas,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mamma Mia,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boeing,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fried Green Tomatoesâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;One Flew Over the Cuckooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest.â&#x20AC;? Cashwell founded the Players in 2005 and the community theatre group has been going strong ever since. She had returned to her hometown of Tarboro after being away for a long time and wanted WRJLYHEDFNWRWKHFRPPXQLW\ZKHUHVKHKDGĂ&#x20AC;UVWOHDUQHGKHUORYH for theatre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think any community that can at all support live theatre should have live theatre. Community theatre is a time-honored way of doing it. In North Carolina, the Raleigh Little Theatre is one of the oldest community theatres in the country,â&#x20AC;? Cashwell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to Tarboro and Edgecombe Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credit that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to keep a community theatre alive during recessionary times.â&#x20AC;?
