Georgia Ensemble Theatre And Chattahoochee Nature Center Bring Back the Man in Black
Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET), the North Fulton professional theatre company, is partnering once again with The Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC) to bring great music to summer nights in Roswell. Back by popular demand, GET will remount Ring of Fire, The Music of Johnny Cash on the Ben Brady Pavilion stage this summer at the CNC. Performances will run Thursdays through Saturdays from July 12-28, 2018 at the Chattahoochee Nature Center, 9135 Willeo Rd., Roswell, GA 30075.
Fresh on the heels of GET’s Buddy Holly: the Buddy Holly Story, the world’s most successful rock-n-roll musical, the supremely talented cast from last summer’s hit production of Ring of Fire is back. Chris Damiano (Million Dollar Quartet, Ring of Fire 2017), Christopher Kent (Million Dollar Quartet, Ring of Fire 2017) Scott Depoy (Almost Heaven John Denver’s America, Ring of Fire 2017), Mark W. Schroeder (Buddy Holly, Ring of Fire 2017) and Laura Lindahl (Ring of Fire 2017) will perform the rock-n-roll concert-version of Ring of Fire, The Music of Johnny Cash.
From vintage country to rockabilly, and rock-n-roll to searing ballads of love and deep faith, Ring of Fire tells the story of the Man in Black through his music. Over two dozen classic Cash hits including “I Walk the Line,” “A Boy Named Sue,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and of course “Ring of Fire” will all be performed by the cast. With musical direction by Chris Damiano, GET continues its special partnership with The Chattahoochee Nature Center for a fourth consecutive summer.
In addition to the show, audience members will have the opportunity to enjoy all of the amenities of the Nature Center and bring a picnic to dine on site. There will be a cash bar available before and during the show. Patrons may reserve seating either at a table under the covered pavilion, or enjoy general admission lawn seating under the stars. The Chattahoochee Nature Center will open at 6:30pm on performance nights for ticketed patrons to enjoy the exhibits and grounds, with show time starting at 8:00pm. (Please no outside alcohol or glass in the nature center.)
Tickets are $16.50 per person for general admission lawn seating, $36.50 for reserved table seating under the Pavilion, $365 for a whole table under the Pavillion (seats ten). Seating is limited, so advance ticket reservations are strongly encouraged. No group discounts available for this venue. Tickets are on sale now at www.get.org or by calling GET at 770-641-1260.
