Event Notes


Voices of the Midwest

By Annie Martin, Dennis E. North, Suzi Regan, and Joseph Zettelmaier Original Music by Suzi Regan

Directed and Sound Designed by Tony Caselli

In 2008, the Williamston Theatre embarked on a unique three-year project called "Voices of the Midwest". After gathering stories from people throughout the Midwest region, four Michigan playwrights used the stories as inspiration for songs, scenes, poems, and monologues. That work became three unique theatrical experiences: "Maidens, Mothers, and Crones: Voices from Women of the Midwest", "Flyover, USA: Voices from Men of the Midwest", and "Home: Voices from Families of the Midwest". During our shutdown due to the coronavirus, we revisited the material and pulled together an audio compilation of our favorite pieces.

Featuring: Katherine Banks, Sandra Birch, Casaundra Freeman, Tobin Hissong, Dan Johnson, John Lepard, Chris Purchis, Suzi Regan, and Emily Sutton-Smith.

Musicians: Suzi Regan, Andrew Wilt

Additional Sound Design by Max Caselli.
