Middle and high school students who can act and sing are needed for the parts of Bride and Groom. The scene of Harper Valley PTA requires acting and singing for a middle-aged woman to play the part of the mother and a high-school-aged girl to play the part of the daughter.
The show will be June 13 at East Carter Middle School and June 14 at West Carter Middle School. Other performances will be announced later.
Thomas traveled on a “jolt wagon” throughout eastern Kentucky learning about musical traditions of the mountain people. She established the American Folk Song Festival.
The Carter project was funded through an Appalachian Regional Commission grant through the Kentucky Department for Local Government and administered by the Brushy Fork Institute at Berea College.
