Musical Stage Play 'The Council of Creatures' to Hit Lakewood Theatre Stage May 22-24
NASHVILLE -- The environmental musical stage play “The Council of Creatures”, written by Nashville playwrights and performers Tammy and Jamey Whiting, will hit the Lakewood Theatre stage in Old Hickory, Tenn., with three shows from May 22-24.
“The Council of Creatures” delivers an environmental message for our time from the viewpoint of Earth's creatures. The musical features the iconic Francis of Assisi and his sidekick Clare, along with a host of animals who are given the opportunity to tell humans how they feel about what is happening to the Earth and to their habitats. Described as entertaining and poignant, the musical will be performed as a two-person show by the Whitings.
"Our handmade masks, original songs and animal antics will delight kids and adults alike, which makes 'The Council of Creatures' good family entertainment," said Tamara Whiting. "Come to the Council and find out what the creatures have to say."
Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday (May 22, 23 and 24). Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for children. Family passes are available for $25. Seats may be reserved in advance by calling (615) 847-0934. Tickets also may be purchased at the door before each show on a first-come, first-served basis. Lakewood Theatre is located at 2211 Old Hickory Blvd. in Old Hickory.
