With songs by Rodgers & Hammerstein and an updated book by Tony-winner David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), this new version of the 1958 Broadway musical honors the original while giving it a more modern, romantic sensibility. The glorious score features the delightful "A Hundred Million Miracles," "I Enjoy Being a Girl," "Grant Avenue," "You Are Beautiful" and "Love Look Away," and the show tells the entertaining story of young Chinese immigrants learning to live in America, as the older generation struggles to retain its classical culture. Enjoy the production outdoors under the stars at the beautiful Woodminster Amphitheater. Learn More

What do you do when a wall of silence comes between you and your dreams? As a budding folk musician in 1970s Alaska, Randy had it all – an adoring girlfriend, a shiny new convertible, and a great gig playing guitar and singing at Anchorage’s Fancy Moose Saloon.

What do you do when a wall of silence comes between you and your dreams? Sure, it might have been easier to just drop the guitar and stay cocooned in a tiny trailer, watch TV and eat chocolate Ho Ho’s for the rest of his life, but thanks to the miracle of digital hearing aids and a lifetime of devoted finger-picking, Rutherford (who has won Best of Fringe on the North American Fringe Festival circuit no less than twenty-one times) has been able to overcome the cruel trick fate played on him to become an award-winning theatre artist. Filled with imagery, honesty, humor and song, Singing at the Edge of the World is an inspiring tale of one man’s ability to overcome adversity.
