WBTT Presents Family-Friendly Rockin' Down Fairytale Lane

Arts & Culture

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY MAY 22, 2020

While the stage in Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe’s brand-new theater building remains dark due to COVID-19, the show will go on(line) in late May. In an effort to lift spirits as well as generate critically-needed revenue, WBTT is proud to continue to offer entertainment options virtually, with the family-friendly musical, “Rockin’ Down Fairytale Lane.” The show will be available online from May 26 through June 8. The book and music were written, and the production was directed, by WBTT Founder and Artistic Director Nate Jacobs. An abbreviated version of “Fairytale Lane” was performed by summer campers at WBTT’s Stage of Discovery musical theatre intensive in 2016; the full-length production was featured as WBTT’s summer show in 2018. While Jacobs has written scores of musical revues, this was his first show featuring all-original music. The cast includes a number of WBTT favorites, including Ariel Blue, Ashley D. Brooks, Earley Dean, Cherise James, Henry Washington and young phenom Samuel “Sammy” Waite. Talented dancers Derric Gobourne, Jr., Joshua Thompson and Topaz von Wood are featured as well. Musical director/co-arranger and bass player is James “Jay” Dodge II; other musicians include Todd Bellamy on piano, Tanmart Selby on auxiliary keys, and Trevoris Scott on drums. Access to the show online costs $15 per household (including $2 processing fee).
