The making of a play

You Don’t Know Me: The Cindy Walker Songbookis one of several musicals appearing recently in our area in this commemorative year that would have been the songwriter’s 100th birthday. Created by Fairfield’s own Jeff Harrison, this show is a beautiful, comprehensive story of Walker’s life and career told through narrative, drama and song. When it was suggested about a year ago by Trinity Star Arts Council that Harrison help produce a tribute to Cindy Walker, it was discovered that there was no existing packaged syndicated show to purchase or lease. No plays about Cindy Walker had been written and published. Director George Boyd suggested Harrison create one himself.

Refreshments were set up inside the Williford building and the SEASONS art was on display. Student artwork was hung in the old Dry Gulch building.
