Fountain Hills Theater to Present QUILTERS
by BWW News Desk - Mar 4, 2016

Fountain Hills Theater is proud to announce the opening of the musical Quilters. Quilters is a marvelous, though rarely produced musical, that blends a series of interrelated scenes into a rich mosaic which captures the sweep and beauty, the terror and joy, the harsh challenge and abiding rewards of frontier life. Illuminating stories contained in various patches or 'blocks' with music, dance and drama, the musical depicts the lot of women on the frontier: girlhood, marriage, childbirth, spinsterhood, twisters, fire, illness and death. But, with this, there is also love, warmth, rich and lively humor and the moving spectacle of simple human dignity and steadfastness in the face of adversity. (more...)
