Serenbe Playhouse’s immersive staging of Shenandoah is set to begin performances in Atlanta March 13. The production, starring American Idol Season 5 winner Taylor Hicks and The X Factor finalist Rachel Potter, is scheduled to run through April 7.
Hicks, who also appeared in the 2007 Broadway revival of Grease, will play Charlie Anderson, with Potter (Evita, The Addams Family) as Anne Anderson.
Directed by Serenbe Artistic Director Brian Clowdus, Shenandoah will be set in the midst of a Civil War re-enactment incorporating more than 100 soldiers, horses, and canon fire to sweep audiences into the story.
