QUILTERS: A FRONTIER MUSICAL

{WEAR} {News3} :: Entertainment News - QUILTERS: A FRONTIER MUSICAL

Life on the early American frontier was rigorous, yet rewarding and Pensacola Little Theatre’s next show Quilters: A Frontier Musical depicts the hardships and joys of the pioneer woman.

Based on the book The Quilters: Women and Domestic Art by Patricia Cooper and Norma Bradley Allen, Quilters is a musical that tells the stories of women on the American frontier through girlhood, marriage, childbirth, spinsterhood, twisters, fire, illness and death. But in these stories you will also find love, warmth, lively humor and the moving spectacle of simple human dignity.

Each woman’s story is told through the artwork of a quilt patch. In the end, when the pieces are assembled, the visual effect is a breathtaking masterpiece which captures the frontier experience through the eyes of these women. For this production, all the quilt blocks were researched and pieced together by the Pensacola Quilter’s Guild.

Quilters received six Tony Award nominations in 1985: Best Book of a Musical, Best Direction of a Musical, Best Musical, Best Original Score, and two Best Featured Actresses in a Musical. The musical is written by Molly Newman and Barbara Damashek, who also wrote the music and lyrics.

Quilters is a Mainstage production and is rated PG-13. Show dates are January 29-31 and February 4-7. All evening performances start at 7:30pm and Sunday matinees at 2:30pm. Tickets may be purchased online, www.pensacolalittletheatre.com or at the PLT Box Office on weekdays 10am- 5:30pm as well as one hour prior to each show.

With his band of 13 musicians and singers, Manilow said, “We’ve had a great time putting the show together. We hope to take everyone on an emotional roller coaster. I can’t wait to see everyone dancing in the aisles.”
 
After performing more than 400 concerts at the Las Vegas Hilton and Paris Las Vegas from 2005 through 2011, Manilow has limited his concert appearances. The ONE LAST TIME! Tour is a major undertaking and as Manilow said, “is my way of thanking everyone for their years of support…one last time!”
 
The GRAMMY®, TONY®, and EMMY® Award-winning musician’s career skyrocketed to superstardom when his mega hit song, “Mandy,” topped the charts in 1975. In the spirit of that special year, tickets will be priced to tie into that year and will start at $19.75. Manilow insisted that the average ticket price remains low and that a greater range of ticket prices be available.
