Live on Stage,Inc and Gallatin Arts Council Announce

American Spirit coming to Gallatin

Tuesday, 2/21/2012


Vol State Community College

Award-winning show producers, Matt Davenport Productions, will present their newest touring show, American Spirit at the Wemyss Auditorium in Caudill Hall on the Volunteer State Community College campus.

Tuesday, February 21 at 7:00pm.

This event is free to the public; however, a $5 donation to the Gallatin Arts Council is suggested.

For more information regarding the Gallatin Arts Council, please call 615-452-9129, or visit our website www.gallatinartscouncil.org.

Initially inspired by the 10-year anniversary of the events of September 11, 2001, the show concept developed by writers Matt Davenport and Scott Seidl has evolved into a montage of the moments, memories and music that embody the American Spirit. More than a patriotic show, this fully costumed and choreographed production show, with a cast of 10 performers, will take the audience down memory lane through eyes of a slightly befuddled Mayor of Hometown, USA remembering the American Revolution, Civil War, Jazz, Broadway, Spirituals and more America's heroes on the battlefield and ball field rubbing elbows with entertainers and politicians alike. I saw something in my friends and neighbors that I recognize as uniquely American in the days and weeks after that infamous day, we wanted to put that pride - that shared history - at center stage, says Mr. Davenport.

Matt Davenport Productions, based in White House, Tennessee, has produced award-winning box office successes across the United States since 1992.

A Christmas Carol....more or less

Saturday, 12/3/2011

Dinner 6:30 p.m.,Show 7:30 p.m

Amber Leaf On the Square

Historic Gallatin, TN

A Christmas Carol...more or less by Stefano LoVerso and Mary Irey (former Saturday Night Live writers) Starring: Francine Berk and Macon Kimbrough

Sarah and Charlie, a married couple, run a small theatre that`s presenting A Christmas Carol -- until Charlie shows up backstage to say the cast and crew are snowed out. Charlie is planning to split up with Sarah tonight, but he`s snowed in. Sarah, furious, capitalizes on Charlie`s remarkable memory, and blackmails him into doing the play with her as a duo, relying on scripts when they need to. He plays Scrooge; she plays everyone else. As the performance proceeds, Charlie gets drawn back into his relationship with Sarah. They actually manage to perform much of the play, with their personal story invading the Dickens tale, infusing it with dual levels of meaning.

For ticket information go to www.melodramatheater.org or phone Mel Roady at 669-0807.
