On Stage This Weekend: "Norman Rockwell's An American Paradise"

   I'm very happy to see the return of the CYAC original musical, Norman Rockwell's An American Paradise!

    I saw it several years back and thoroughly enjoyed it (it doesn't hurt that I'm a big Rockwell fan, of course). 

   The show is an original musical with music by Mark Scarpelli and lyrics by Dan Kehde. It features 27 vignettes, each based on a different Rockwell painting that tells a story behind each painting. It's loaded with terrific songs, and each one brings a different painting to life. 

    You'll find a great mix of styles and subjects, including songs that will touch your heart, bring a tear to your eye and make you laugh out loud!

   Shows will be on Sept. 29, 30 and Oct. 1, 6, 7 and 8 at 8 p.m., and Oct. 2 at 2 p.m. at the WVSU Capitol Center Theater at 123 Summers Street in Charleston. 

   Tickets are $8 for students and senior citizens and $15 for adults.

   Highly recommended!
