Cleoma. Part I

by carolyn with no comments

We at Itinerant Theatre (IT) have 3 fun-filled fall events for Southwest Louisiana. As our never-a-dull-moment State’s Bicentennial Year draws to a close, IT decided, for Fall Production #1, to bring you the innovative, bold Acadian first lady of song:  Cleoma Breaux Falcon.  Cleoma was a rule-breaker, for sure, cher.  She stood alone for decades, as the 1st and about the only female to perform, for pay, in SWLA’s rough-and-tumble dancehalls… and be recorded with husband, Joe. They were firsts.  That’s only a sliver of this colorful tale.  For this premiere join IT at 7:00pm Oct. 4-6 in Lake Charles’s intimate Annex, Imperial Calcasieu Museum. Ann Savoy, Cleoma’s successor to the throne of Acadian music and a 2x-Grammy-nominee performs Cleoma as a staged reading ( www.annsavoy.com ).  Each night different events accompany this short, sassy play — such as The Magnolia Sisters music at 8p on Saturday night!  (www.magnoliasisters.com — Separate $10 ticket but @ a 50% discount for play-goers).  For more info & to purchase tickets  visit www.itineranttheatre.com or “like” us on Facebook.
