WOODY GUTHRIE’S AMERICAN SONG is first and foremost a celebration of American life, our history, our struggles, our joys as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of one of America’s greatest folk music treasures, Woody Guthrie. Written for five actors and three musicians, this ensemble play traverses our land “from California to the New York Island…from the redwood forests to the deep sea waters.” And like the song says, this play was made for you and me. Playing to sold out audiences all over the country, this musical is a must see for adults and kids alike.
