Ring of Fire Performances are on March 9, 10, 11, 16 & 17

Frank "Sandy" Higgins is one of the six cast members in "Ring of Fire."
"Ring of Fire," a unique musical about love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, home and family and roots and relationships is told in music from the iconic songbook of the late Johnny Cash. This show promises to be a foot-stomping, crowd-pleaser.

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, March 9 & 10 and 16 & 17 and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 11 in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.

For this Hamilton-Gibson production, a multi-talented cast of six and four instrumentalists will perform more than two dozen classic hits by "The Man in Black," such as “I Walk The Line,” “A Boy Named Sue,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and the title tune to paint "the essence of an American experience."

Cast members include: Cindy Bastian and Eric Bailey, both of Mansfield; Penny Eckman of Tioga; Frank "Sandy" Higgins of Blossburg; Logan Route of Canton; and Noyes Lawton of Wellsboro.

Instrumentalists are: Dan Krise on mandolin and fiddle and Thomas Putnam at the piano, both of Wellsboro, and Mark Moffett on guitar and Levi Seybert on drums, both of Middlebury Center.

Richard Maltby is the creator and director of the show conceived by William Meade. A Tony-award winning director, Maltby is known for conceiving and directing "Ain't Misbehavin'," co-conceiving and directing "Fosse" and co-authoring "Miss Saigon" and "Song and Dance."

In talking about "Ring of Fire," Maltby said, "I hope we will touch your heart, mind and soul and take you back to a part of your life you may want to return to through these wonderful songs."

Kenneth Jones wrote two different pieces about "Ring of Fire" for "Playbill." The first is titled “’Ring of Fire’ Musical Doesn't Tell Johnny Cash's Story - It Sings Our Lives" on Jan. 13, 2006 and the other “’Man in Black’ Inspires Musical 'Ring of Fire’" on March 12, 2006. In them, he points out what “Ring of Fire" is not. It is not a strict biography of Cash, nor is it a concert or a jukebox musical comedy. It does not include a character named Johnny Cash nor any scenes.

Jones writes: "What 'Ring of Fire' is aiming to be is a book musical without a traditional plot; a show with a multitude of characters and a broad-strokes sampling of life experiences that can be applied to the characters in the show" and that audience members can apply to themselves.

Co-sponsored by Partners In Progress and Dr. Donna and Kenneth Mettler this show is for people of all ages. Admission for each of the five performances is $12 per adult and $6 per youth, 18 and under. A FlexPass is $60.
