Photo Flash: First Look at RING OF FIRE at Wisconsin Dells


From the iconic songbook of Johnny Cash comes a riveting Broadway musical about love and faith, struggle and success, redemption and family. The Palace Theater, Wisconsin Dells' newest professional theater, 564 Wisconsin Dells Pkwy South, ignites their 2015 season with RING OF FIRE, running now through May 3, and rekindling its run June 15 through August 29. Scroll down for a first look at the cast in action!

Directed by Warren Scott Friedman, with musical direction by John Foley (Pump Boys and Dinettes on Broadway), RING OF FIRE stars Kendra Jo Brook, Justin Droegemueller, Nyssa Duchow, Robert Kitchens, Davey Rosenberg (International Tour of Hair) and Ovation Award-winner Jake Williamson.

RING OF FIRE guides audiences on a journey through singer Johnny Cash's storied life and celebrated music, from the cotton fields of Arkansas to the Grand Ole Opry. The show was created by Tony Award Recipient Richard Maltby, Jr. and conceived by William Meade with orchestrations by Steven Bishop and Jeff Lisenby. This version is a re-imagining of the original Broadway production, more intimate, but with a full musical soundscape. More than 35 of Cash's hit songs including "I Walk the Line", "Hey Porter," "Folsom Prison Blues" and the title tune, paint a musical portrait of "The Man in Black" that promises to be a crowd-pleasing salute to the uniquely American legend. Cash is primarily remembered as a country music artist; however his style spanned from gospel to folk, rock to blues, and country in between.

Lighting Design is by Dan Efros, Set Design is by Robert Andrew Kovach, and Costume Design is by Anne Manley.
