Trav’lin-The 1930s Harlem Musical
Now through June 11
(no performances Memorial Weekend)
Music and Lyrics by J.C.Johnson Book by Gary Holmes and Allan Shapiro
EAST COAST PREMIERE
Trav’lin…“See it with someone you love and you’ll love them a little bit more”.
TRAV’LIN is a high-octane, jazzy-soul fest that takes you back to Harlem in the 1930’s when the music was swinging, big bands ruled and the Harlem Renaissance was in high gear.
This jazz infused musical follows the romantic escapades of three couples of different ages: the young lovers new to love and oh so innocent, the seen-it-all lovers who bicker and fight but darn it they love each other, and the mature folk who wonder if it’s too late to fall in love one more time.
Playing the game of love, they learn enduring lessons when George, a retired Pullman porter and church deacon, meets his match in the guise of a down-and-out stranger who is not the person she pretends to be.
TRAV’LIN rediscovers the music of Harlem Renaissance composer J.C. Johnson.
Johnson wrote Bessie Smiths’ signature song “Empty Bed Blues” and collaborated with such artists as Fats Waller, Chick Webb, and George Whiting. His songs were recorded by such icons as Billie Holliday, Ethel Waters, Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Armstrong, Fred Astaire, Duke Ellington and Count Basie. The Broadway musicals BESSIE and ME, and AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ reprised his music for a new generation
The sold out hit of the New York Musical Theatre Festival. “Keep your eye open for the return of this fantastic musical.” Ron Scott – New York Amsterdam News; “TRAV’LIN is a pure delight.” Michael Glitz – Huffington Post; “You’ll be entranced. “Oscar E. Moore – TALKENTERTANMENT.com – New York; “This show is pitch perfect and will have you enamored from start to finish.. “ BRYAN-KEYTH WILSON – Broadway World;
“Go for any reason – just go see TRAV’LIN…”Kristy Blackmon – The Column – Fort Worth; “…. So for someone who doesn’t like musicals, TRAV’LIN made me a fan.” Nicholas Linnehan – NYTHEATRE.

Patti Sinclair-Spiritual Medium
Saturday, June 17 at 8 PM
Patti Sinclair is a professional Spiritual Medium who has made several
appearances on Connecticut Style on WTNH TV, Hay House Radio with John Holland and is a regular guest on HOT 93.7 radio.
For many of us it is difficult to imagine where our deceased loved ones
“are” given that they don’t live in a physical body any longer. We spend
hours and hours worrying about their whereabouts and if they are
“alright”. Those that I communicate with on the other side remind me on a
daily basis that although they no longer live a life the way they did here
on Earth, their life is still very REAL. They do things that bring them
joy and never have to worry about things that are all too human any
longer. They remind me to tell you that they are living a life in Heaven,
but that they are always Within Reach.
Summer Theatre Camp
Sign up now for our exciting Summer Theatre Camp. July 5-August 18. 3 age groups, 7-9, 10-12 and 13-18. Classes are 9 AM to 3 PM.
Our camp uses theatre arts to build confidence, self-esteem and teamwork, encouraging creativity and imagination. Participants learn to work cooperatively with each other and with professional staff – right in the theater. The classes are in a safe supervised environment with professional instructors. Though it is a performing arts camp; there is no show at the end. Each week a presentation is performed for family and friends based on what the students have been studying during the week. The presentation achieves the same experience of speaking and performing confidently in public. Each student is able to perform at their own comfort level, allowing them to grow and gain confidence each week without being locked into a show. Eliminating a production allows the teachers to focus more attention and training on each individual student. It is not necessary for a student to have any experience in the arts to come to camp.
Call box office for details and to sign up.
