2015 Schmeckfest Musical Named
The program committee of the Freeman Academy Auxiliary is pleased to announce that "Big River" will be presented as the 2015 Schmeckfest musical, under the direction of Jeremy Waltner.
"Big River" is based on the Mark Twain novel of 1884 that follows the adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer and others along their journey - including a slave named Jim with whom Huck develops a close relationship. "Big River" was written by William Hauptman, with music and lyrics by Roger Miller, who uses primarily the musical styles of country and bluegrass.
"Big River" was also presented as the Schmeckfest musical in 1992.
Waltner said he is making preliminary plans to hold auditions in December, 2014 with rehearsals beginning the first week of January.
Tickets will go on sale later this fall.
