History Boy Theatre Co, your regional musical theatre located in Jefferson, presents the Midwest premier of new musical, Golden Boy of the Blue Ridge.
Golden Boy is a bluegrass musical set in 1930’s Appalachia. A young fugitive, Clayton Monroe, arrives one night at the cabin of moonshiner, J.M. McFarland. When Clay says he’s killed his father, locals are enthralled. Held up as a hero, the shy Clay begins to transform, gaining confidence and winning the attentions of his host’s daughter, Maggie. Maggie’s fiancé, the craven Luther Coffey, enlist the aid of a crafty widow, Hazel Grubbs, to try to get rid of his new rival. Just as Clay is coming into his own, his father shows up, hellbent on revenge. Golden Boy of the Blue Ridge is a joyously tuneful, outrageously funny tale, served up with a splash of moonshine.
Tickets are $12.50 and will be available after May 19 by calling 515-370-4306 or in person at RVP~1875, 115 S. Wilson, Jefferson, IA.
