Young Jack Hamish is ready to defend his title of Junior
Division Hollerin’ Champion at the annual Watauga County hollerin' contest, but that could all be threatened by a mysterious young lady named Jill, The greatest hollerer this side of Highway 81! As Jack and his pals try to save his upcoming town record, the Mayor and his stalwart associate Teddy Roosevelt (NOT that one) try to save the town from a rampaging bear! Be there as BCTC presents the world premiere of Jon Fitts wild comedy!

* We will also be having a reception and talkback with playwright Jonathan Fitts during the run. Details TBA!


It's a world premiere written by Jonathan Fitts, who was in the Burning Coal company Professor Davis performed with in London back in November. 

Davis says, "Fitts is a young man who got his MFA in play writing at NYU and has a lot of great stuff going on right now. He's a TREMENDOUS writer."

Some really cool stuff in the show. Musical number, puppets, hilarious comedy...good stuff. We are also going to bring Jon in to do a play writing workshop and to hold a talk-back during the weekend of the show (March 26-29)
And Davis says he is "bringing in my good friend (and former student from the Gulf Coast), Carrie Fergusson Belew, to design the show for us again". 

With Natalie Cummins doing costumes, Eric Seale working on a secret "special project," this should be a really fantastic show!

Should be really killer!

see you at the show,
