Man of a Thousand Songs
Itinerant Theatre (IT) brings to the Lake Area a premier staged reading of the play Man of a Thousand Songs by Carolyn Woosley. This continues their “The Play’s the Thing” staged reading series”. The three (3) performances are 7:00pm May 7, 8 and 9. Location is Room 339 of Central School Arts & Humanities Center, 809 Kirby Street, Lake Charles. Tickets are $7, or $5 for students with ID.
Written by local playwright Carolyn Woosley, Man of a Thousand Songs continues Itinerant Theatre’s 2014-15 theme of “America’s Unfinished Business: Freedom” and closes this season. Set in the historic Storyville District of early twentieth century New Orleans, a young Tony Jackson, the first piano man of jazz, struggles with issues of identity in a strict and unforgiving society where social taboos are not challenged.

Gonzalez”, Maya Manuel plays “Thereze”, Michael Muffuletto plays “Jim Richardson” and Dion Demouchet plays “Jake”. Director is Joy Pace.
