Scotland, 1945: Seven young women, all members of the Women's Royal Naval Service (aka Wrens), are packed together in a tiny barrack on the eve of V-E Day. All from different backgrounds, regions, religions and classes, the women must confront complex emotions and decisions as they face the prospect of peace, which also means an end to their newfound wartime independence in Wrens. Written by Anne McGravie, this semi-autobiographical drama is an examination of loyalty, morality and duty during World War II. Learn More

“Part memory play, part loving homage, part country concert, this Ride is so peppy and irresistible … Waylon Jennings was right: Bob Wills is still the king. You’ll be dancing in the aisles!” —The Dallas Morning News
Before there was Elvis, before there was Hank, there was a fiddler from West Texas by the name of Bob Wills – and he was The King. Eisemann Center Presents the musical production A Ride With Bob – the first-ever play about the life and music of Bob Wills.
This musical biography, written by Ray Benson and Anne Rapp, includes the live performance of 15 of Wills’ most popular songs in a plot that interweaves Ray Benson’s present day with various stages in Wills’ storied career. A Ride With Bob played at the Eisemann Center for one sold out performance in February 2009 and returned in July 2010.
The production stars the nine-time Grammy-Award winner Ray Benson and the famous band Asleep at the Wheel. Featuring an all-star cast of actors and musicians including The Quebe Sisters Band, this show will take you on a trip through the life of the founder of western music – Bob Wills.
