As a part of its 2013-2014 season, Summer Stock Austin presents The Bremen Town Musicians, July 27-August 11 at the Long Center.
**Tickets are SOLD OUT for the Wed. performance (8/7)**
Austin Theatre Arist, Allen Robertson, brings The Bremen Town Musicians to life. Based on “The Musicians of Bremen Town,” written by the Brothers Grimm around 1910, four animals deemed too old to be useful by their owners flee their grisly fates in hopes of becoming Bremen town musicians. With a country, bluegrass, and gospel score, the familiar tale is set in 1930s America as the Donkey, Cat, Dog, and Rooster take a road trip in search of their musical careers.
“Fittingly, the music of the play truly is uplifting. The songs’ lyrics are penned with grade and humor. Free, the animals’ anthem, and the spiritual I’ll Be There gave me goose bumps, an uncommon reaction in a children’s play.” — The Austin Chronicle
