            NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 2016) – Actors Valerie Connelly (second from left) and John Armstrong (fourth from left) welcome Mustard Seed Ranch Executive Director Tammy Depperschmidt (first from left) and Putnam County Habitat for Humanity Office Manager Becky Burnett to a sponsorship dinner for "FEARLESS! TheGolden Love Musical". The Broadway-style show will hold its world premiere at the Cookeville (Tenn.) Performing Arts Center from July 7-17. Ticket sales will benefit the Putnam County Habitat for Humanity's new Cookeville West End Place Housing Initiative, the Bryan Symphony Orchestra, TTU Tech Players, and the Mustard Seed Ranch for endangered, at-risk children. More than 100 area businesses and organizations have donated their products and services to help make the play possible. The dinner was hosted in Cookeville by the First National Bank of Tennessee. Connelly, a Cookeville playwright/composer, spent many years writing what some are calling today's version of "West Side Story" and "The Sound of Music". "FEARLESS!" centers on divorcee Nikki (portrayed by Connelly) and widower Daniel (portrayed by Armstrong), 60-somethings who befriend each other later in life. What does a mother/grandmother do when a man falls for her at this age? Connelly uses playful dialog, heartfelt songs, and elaborate dance moves to bring the two friends and/or potential "Boomer" lovebirds to life. To buy tickets, visit or call (931) 528-1313.
