Get your tickets now to join Rainbow Elder Care of Greater Dayton for performances of “Quilt: A Musical Celebration.”. The production is scheduled for December 6 – 8 at the Historic Baum Opera House in downtown Miamisburg. Here’s what others have said about “Quilt”:
“Quilt, A Musical Celebration, is a unique and affecting work that uses the power of musical theatre to celebrate and remember both those who died from AIDS and those who have survived or been left behind. Based on true stories from friends and loved ones who were left behind, the musical is a living history for a new generation.
“The structure of the musical, Quilt, A Musical Celebration, mirrors the structure of the actual NAMES Project Quilt by incorporating many individual stories into a tapestry that tells the whole story. The stories of two volunteers on the project – Wes, who is making a panel for someone very dear whom he has lost, and Karen, who is nervous about participating but wants to do something – create a framework that supports the telling of stories reflected in a variety of other quilt panels. In monologues and songs, Quilt, A Musical Celebration, evokes a full range of powerful emotions, as so many lives are honored.”
