The most anticipated show of the season has arrived. After a long journey over almost three years, Cambria the Musical hits the stage at the Cambria Center for the Arts Theatre (CCAT), beginning this Friday, June 24, and running through Sunday, July 10. Written by local Cambrians Ed and Linda Hughes, Cambria the Musical follows the tale of Dolphin and Mary Inman as they travel west in the late 1800s. Dolphin flees, leaving Mary to fend for herself as she makes her way to Slabtown. There she meets one of Cambria’s founders, George Lull, and the rest, as they say, is history.
With tongue in cheek and taking several liberties, Cambria the Musical is a hilarious romp through time. Filled with lighthearted original music played live by Musical Director Jeff Mar, the show is thoroughly entertaining. The show is directed by CCAT’s Artistic Director Jill Turnbow and choreography is handled by Shirley Kirkes-Mar. Featured in the cast are Ed and Linda Hughes, Cambria native Sarah Smith, Anthony Toohey, Dan Cowan, Edie Irving, Ryan Loyd and, making her stage debut, Terri Crowe.
Tigg Morales has brought to the show a tremendous scenic concept and added a clever design element and fantastic artwork. Costumes have been coordinated by Randall Sumabat. Lighting and sound design are managed by Jane Lloyd and Joe Crowley.
CCAT is proud to present this joyous, comedic look at Cambria’s history, a show that is not be missed. Tickets are on sale now online at CambriaArts.org, and they also will be available at the door. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:00 p.m., and on Sundays at 2:00 p.m. For more information, visit the website at, CambriaArts.org.
