Overview

Bound for Glory, Nine Hundred Miles, This Land Is Your Land. We all know them and we've all sung them – songs about the open road, fighting for one's rights, and the beauty of nature.  Now meet the man that brought them all to life.  As he looked for work and his next meal, Woody sang the stories of a whole nation determined to survive the Great Depression.  Pull up a chair and join with us in discovering and celebrating the great American who gave our country its voice. Directed by Randal Myler, who brought ATC audiences Hank Williams: Lost Highway, It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues and Love, Janis.

Three performances added in Tucson!
