freeFall Theatre's THE BURNT PART BOYS to Open Today

freeFall Theatre's upcoming production of THE BURNT PART BOYS takes you out of St. Pete, Florida and deep into West Virginia's coal mines, following the very human experience of fourteen-year-old Pete, his brother Jake and their friends. As these daring young people journey into the coal mine known as "the burnt part", the same mine that took their fathers' lives, audiences are challenged to experience and perceive the streaks of light and the depths of the darkness that lie in each of us. By turns magical, inspiring, raucous, and playful it is a coming-of-age tale in the finest vein of the genre that people from all walks of life can relate to.

Eric Davis directs THE BURNT PART BOYS with musical direction by Michael Raabe. This production stars Katie Berger (freeFall's SPRING AWAKENING), Nick Fitzer, Joseph Flynn, Cameron Kubly, Nick Lerew, Daniel Schwab (freeFall's FIDDLER ON THE ROOF), Jim Sorensen (Creative Loafing's Best Actor - Best of the Bay 2012), Patrick Ryan Sullivan (Broadway's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, FORTY-SECOND STREET) and Chris Vaughn.

Composer Chris Miller and lyricist Nathan Tysen along with librettist, Mariana Elder, created this empowering and thrilling theatrical experience for young and old alike that the New York Times said recalls "the exploits of Mark Twain's beloved roughhousers, Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn." THE BURNT PART BOYS is the winner of the Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award (2009) and nominated for the Lucille Lortel for Best Musical (2010).
