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.

Actors Frank Saxon, John Kemgard, and Teresa Teixeira visit the show to talk about their upcoming production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible.

We’ve got your next ticket purchases here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
