God's Country A New Musical Book and lyrics by Erik Johnke Music by Elaine Chelton Directed by Craig J. George Musical direction by Bryan L. Wade March 11 at 3 PM and 7 PM
"It’s 1871. Wealthy Englishman James Watson’s world is shattered by his mother’s death and the revelation that he is adopted and Irish. Discovering his birth mother lives in America, he travels there on an epic journey to find his true identity. Sweeping melodies with Irish flavor carry this dynamic tale. God’s Country was performed at the New York Musical Theatre Festival in July 2013."
