Hiawatha
Stage Play - Musical Drama

Log line: This stage musical drama is adapted from America’s greatest poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s (1807-82) native-American epic poem, “Song of Hiawatha.” The musical is impregnated with the playwright’s original songs and dialogue in keeping the tradition of this classic masterpiece of literature, whose story was ahead of its time.

Synopsis: Gitche Manito, the Master of Life foretells the coming of a prophet to teach Native American tribes peace and wisdom. The Great Spirit convenes a great council gathering of all the tribes to tell them that their wars must stop. The promised one is Hiawatha. He is the son born in love and sorrow to Wenonah and Mudjekeewis, a hero who becomes Father of the Winds of Heaven. The legendary story of Hiawatha is an adventure drama filled with actions of supernatural powers, romance and tragedy. Hiawatha’s conflict with his father is followed by his courtship and brief marriage to the beautiful Minnehaha, who dies from winter illness. The prophesied leader, however, must continue to follow his destiny’s path to serve the tribes.

In Hiawatha’s story, Longfellow has woven time-enduring truths that still reflect contemporary cultures throughout the world. The saga of Hiawatha affected the American literary culture in 1855 with the same kind of imagination power that “Star Wars” did in 1977. This classic masterpiece was required reading in American literature courses in high schools in the mid-20th century and was one of the earliest stories published by Classics comic books.

Hank Williams ~ Last Encore
Stage Play - Musical Drama

Log line: The dramatic, exciting and tragic professional and personal life of legendary country music singer Hank Williams is revealed in a two-act presentation that also features his most popular song hits.

Synopsis: This staged personal and musical biography of Hank Williams is limited to a cast of eight players for maximum concentration and focus on understanding his true nature from those who were closest and knew him best. In addition to personal revelations from the singer, insights into the man come from his wife, Audrey; his mother, Lillie and his publisher/manager Fred Rose. Hank’s personal relationships and physical tribulations of addiction to pain-killing drugs are laid-open in the brief life of the singing star. When he died on January 1, 1953, he was nine months shy of his 30th birthday. During his brief writing and performing career his music created the effect of a giant meteor striking the planet. Dialogues representing real people in this drama are fictional renderings from the playwright based on limited research sources on Hank’s life. The roles of the ghosts “narrators” provide historical information on events in the artist’s life.

His last performance tour was in mid-December 1952 in Texas. His health was so bad those close to him feared he would die any day. He performed his last show at Stark’s Skyline Club in Austin, Texas to a maximum audience of 800 people who lined the club’s walls to hear the great singer. He sang his first set for four hours without faltering as sweat poured from his hands to the floor. Then he responded to numerous calls for encores. That show was his final encore. He was utterly exhausted when he finished, remaining true to his art. The play brings back Hank’s gut-wrenching songs such as “Lovesick Blues,” “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” “Why Don’t You Love Me,” “Cold, Cold Heart,” “I Can’t Help It If I’m Still In Love With You,” “Take These Chains From My Heart,” and “You Win Again” turn nostalgic knots of memories in every music listener’s heart and psyche. This was the man whose originality, style and distinctive voice rocked the country music world. There will probably never be another country singer equal to or greater than Hank Williams.
