STORMING HEAVEN: THE MUSICAL

Based on the Book "Storming Heaven" by Denise Giardina
Book by Katy Blake and Peter Davenport
Music and Lyrics by: Katy Blake, Flip Anderson, Tracy Lawrence and Peter Davenport
STORMING HEAVEN: THE MUSICAL centers on Carrie Bishop, the mine doctor's nurse and sister of the mine superintendent, who finds herself unwittingly in the middle of a love triangle with Albion Freeman her husband and preacher to the miners, and Rondal Lloyd, a charismatic Union organizer. Carrie's journey of self-discovery – a 20th century woman struggling to find her own identity and power – parallels the miners' struggle for basic human rights.

The 39 Steps
June 26-30Gladys G Davis Theatre, Morgantown, WV
The 39 Steps, a Tony Award-winning stage adaptation of the Alfred Hitchcock film, is a fast-paced, laugh-a-minute whodunit with a virtuosic cast of four playing nearly 50 characters. Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python, a few secret agents (and double agents), handcuffs, ham sandwiches, and some good old-fashioned romance, and you have an unforgettable night at the theatre!

Tickets for Kids Charities
We believe that everyone should be able to go to the theatre. That's why we're partnering with Tickets for Kids Charities to give free tickets to low-income and at-risk youth in West Virginia this summer.
We will match every donation we receive – which means for every $15 donated by the public, WVPT will provide 2 tickets to Storming Heaven: The Musical or The 39 Steps, to local children and families who might not otherwise have the opportunity to see live performance.
We raised enough to donate 64 tickets to It's a Wonderful Life – our goal for this summer is 100 tickets!
You can donate to this initiative online (Donate – simply list “Tickets for Kids” under PayPal “special instructions”) or by mailing a check to PO Box 6082, Morgantown, WV 26506, or by calling (304) 381-2382.
No amount is too small to make a difference!
