A magical story of hope in troubled times!
"...THE SONGWRITING IS SUPERB!" - Arthur Zadinsky, Seattle Symphony
"...FILLS THE STAGE WITH EMOTIONAL WARMTH AND POWER" - Karen Lund, Taproot Theatre Co., Seattle
During the tensions and uncertainties of World War 2, Vera Webster, entertainer and movie star, returns to Vashon Island and her childhood home, Winghaven Park, on a tour to raise money for War Bonds. Her life of glamour and ease is tested against the harsh realities of the War in the lives of friends and neighbors she left behind, a forgotten romance with her high school sweetheart, and a family secret that could alter her future.
With songs ranging from swing, blues, ballads and musical comedy, Winghaven Park explores the consequences of war, racial injustice, and the enduring hope for love, forgiveness, and belonging.
