October 1, 2013
The Pinedale Fine Arts Council is proud to kick off its 2013-14 season ticket series with the jukebox musical Ring of Fire – The Music of Johnny Cash live on Tuesday, October 8 at 7 p.m. in the Pinedale Auditorium.
Stories of faith, family, passion, redemption, and humor set the stage ablaze in this new national tour of Ring of Fire—The Music of Johnny Cash. Touching on the life and times of one of the world’s most legendary musical artists, Johnny Cash, the musical revue Ring of Fire is considered one of the best "jukebox musicals" of our time. Although Cash himself is never impersonated, Ring of Fire features a company of performers that will guide you on a journey through Cash’s storied life and celebrated music, from the cotton fields of Arkansas to the Grand Ole Opry. Ring of Fire features more than 35 of his hit songs from his long career including I Walk the Line, Jackson, If I Were A Carpenter, I’ve Been Everywhere, Folsom Prison blues, A Boy Named Sue, his final hit, Daddy Sang Bass and the title track Ring of Fire. With smashing medleys and bounce in its guitar-driven energy, this show will have you stompin’ your feet and asking for more.
Cash is primarily remembered as a country music artist, however his style spanned from gospel to folk, rock to blues, and country in between. Both critically and audience acclaimed, this show has been bringing audiences to their feet at large and small theaters around the country. The New York Post calls it "Effective, funny and imaginatively presented," "Ring of Fire is HOT!" declares Variety. "It’s touching and exuberant," says the Associated Press.
Ticket prices for the Oct. 8 performance are $15 for adults and $7 for students (kids under the age of 5 are free). Tickets are on sale now at Rock Rabbit, Pine Street Floral & Gifts, The Cowboy Shop, Office Outlets, Isabel Jewelry, the Big Piney Library and at the door the night of the performance ($2 extra).
