The Barn Dinner Theatre Proudly Presents
LOST HIGHWAY, THE MUSIC AND LEGEND OF HANK WILLIAMS
a smash hit direct from Nashville, Tennessee
September 26th through November 18th
Music lovers around the world have been captivated by the richness of Hank Williams' voice. This critically acclaimed production explores the life, loves, and music of one of country's most legendary stars. The show retraces the steps of Hank's humble beginnings in his rural hometown of Montgomery, Alabama. The musical influences of Hank's younger years paved the way for the songs he wrote that today are considered timeless standards.
Although his untimely death (at age 29) ended the life of a legendary performer, Hank's music lives on in our hearts. In 1961 Hank Williams was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 1987 his name was added to the list of musicians honored in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Lost Highway honors Williams' memory with a combination of scenes from his life, as well as performances of the songs he made famous. There are over 20 classic hits included such as "Hey Good Lookin', I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and "Your Cheatin' Heart".
Starring as "Hank" in The Barn's production is Mitch Snow, a talented and well-respected musician from the Piedmont Triad area. Snow is an explosive performer who has truly captured the feelings and emotions of this Country Superstar. A live band will also accompany Mr. Snow in this production. Local artist Bobby Bodford, who has over 30 years experience as a professional actor, stage director, and TV and film costume designer, directs Lost Highway.
Lost Highway, The Music and Legend of Hank Williams will perform Wednesday-Sunday evenings September 26-November 17, 2001. Also a matinee performance has been added on November 18 with lunch at 12:30 pm and show at 2:00 pm.
Ticket prices range from $28-38 per person and include our large, traditional buffet dinner and the performance.
