COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (May 2016) -- The Broadway-style play "FEARLESS! The Golden Love Musical" will hold its world premiere on July 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, 16 and 17 at the 450-seat Cookeville Performing Arts Center, 10 E. Broad St. in Cookeville, Tennessee.

"I'm thrilled to stage the world premiere of my musical at the beautiful CPAC theatre in Cookeville," said Cookeville playwright/composer Valerie Connelly, who spent many years writing what some are calling today's version of "West Side Story" and "The Sound of Music".
"FEARLESS!', which features a vibrant cast (including two puppies) and a 24-piece orchestra, is a wholesome family double-love story that previewers agree "provokes toe-tapping, laughter and tears." The story's characters sing and dance across the stage, expressing 2016 challenges, opportunities, joys and the importance of fearlessness in the pursuit of life, love and happiness.
Connelly is a Cookeville-based songwriter-performer, fine artist, film score composer, and book publisher in Cookeville. She joined ASCAP in 1987 as a songwriter and professional performer and has composed hundreds of songs.
