STAGE TUBE: John Tartaglia & More in Promo Video for World Premiere of BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE at Arkansas Rep
BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE, with a book and lyrics by Nell Benjamin and music by Duncan Sheik, and based on the popular 2000 novel by Kate DeCamillo, will have its word premiere this winter at Arkansas Repertory Theatre, with AVENUE Q's John Tartaglia at the helm. The production is set to run Dec. 6 - Dec. 29, 2013. Check out a sneak peek below!
BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE tells the story of lonely young girl who moves to Florida with her father. She goes into the Winn-Dixie supermarket and comes out with a large stray dog who helps her rekindle an almost lost relationship with her father.
Taran and Cally, two Irish Wolfhounds, have been cast in the title role of "Winn-Dixie," trained by Broadway's foremost animal trainer, Bill Berloni. This will be the first pre-Broadway musical starring a live dog as the central character.
