Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown our co-hosts Leslie M. Scott-Jones and David Vaughn Straughn give you a double shot of drama with two local theaters about to open two very different but equally interesting shows. First, DMR Adventures and Belmont Arts Collaborative collaborate to bring out Will & Whit, the musical adaptation of local graphic novelist Laura Lee Gulledge’s graphic novel of the same name. Gulledge visits the show for the first time to tell David and Leslie about her “artnership” with DMR Artistic Director, returning guest Melissa Charles. They also bring along young actor Mia Buckley to sing the show’s first song on the air. Next, we head on up Barboursville way to our friends at Four County Players. Actors Frank Saxon, John Kemgard, and Teresa Teixeira visit the show to talk about their upcoming production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. It’s a great conversation about working with Miller’s language and the challenge to what to allow this classic American parable to represent. We’ve got your next ticket purchases here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
