"Excellent!"

"Phenomenal!"

"Outstanding!"

That's how audience members who saw "Scenes and Songs from 'Fannie Lou'" in Connecticut last fall described it. In March, the work will have its New York premiere.

"Scenes and Songs from 'Fannie Lou'" is a staged reading of selected dialogue and songs from the upcoming original musical "Fannie Lou," inspired by and honoring the life of voting rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer.

The production will take place March 24 at the Producers Club, 358 W. 44th St. Seating is limited.

With a compelling script and a riveting score, "Scenes and Songs from 'Fannie Lou'" introduces the audience to Mrs. Hamer and her struggle to gain voting rights in rural Mississippi in the early 1960's. The production reveals Mrs. Hamer's determination and steadfast resolve, her influence on people around her, and their influence on her.

Nine scenes and 10 songs from the full musical are highlighted in this production. The music is a powerful array of ballads, mid-tempo songs and uptempo selections in pop, jazz, blues, light opera and traditional musical theater styles.  

"Scenes and Songs from 'Fannie Lou'" features book, music and lyrics by Felicia Hunter, and the production is stage managed by award-winning technical expert Rich Abrams.

The talented cast of 17 ensemble players includes experienced performers and some of the tri-state area's most gifted up-and-coming actors and singers.

This production should be especially enlightening to young adults and teenagers, who might not know about the historic impact of Fannie Lou Hamer. Her work was instrumental in the passage and signing by President Lyndon B. Johnson of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

The Fannie Lou Hamer Theater Project Group is proud to present this musical inspired by the life of Fannie Lou Hamer, whose story epitomizes the triumph of the human spirit over adversity. To hear testimony Mrs. Hamer gave regarding her struggle for voting rights, visit the following web site: http://soundlearning.publicradio.org/subjects/history_civics/say_it_plain/fannie_lou_hamer.shtml

This set of New York premiere performances of "Scenes and Songs from 'Fannie Lou'" will be presented one day only, on Saturday, March 24. Performances will take place at 2 p.m., 4 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. The production runs about 90 minutes. There will be no intermission.

There is limited seating. In addition to general admission tickets, a special "Backstage Pass" ticket is being offered. This exclusive-access pass is designed for audience members who would like to learn about and experience the ins and outs of putting together "Scenes and Songs from 'Fannie Lou.'" Holders of the pass will be able to sit in on the tech rehearsal, have light refreshments, participate in a pre-show discussion with the composer and other cast and crew members AND see the New York premiere performance at 2 p.m. The password/promotional code to obtain the Backstage Pass is: Backstage.  

Each of the March 24 performances is a not-for-profit event. All proceeds from regular ticket and Backstage Pass sales are applied to production costs.

Note: Save all ticket stubs/proofs of purchase!! The complete cost of what you pay for any ticket sold for any of the March 24 productions of "Scenes and Songs from 'Fannie Lou'" will be deducted from the price of the full fall performance of "Fannie Lou." It's our way of saying THANK YOU!!
