SUMMER’S SOLDIER, AUGUST 11 – AUGUST 14 | MAIN STAGE. Seventh grader Sam has kept to herself since her dad died while serving in the military. Her mother and her aunt have tried everything to get her to open up, but she only truly comes out of her shell around a fire, telling ghost stories, in the woods with her friends. When Sam’s favorite story suddenly materializes before her eyes, she sets out on an adventure and, ultimately, on a journey of self-discovery. This free and family-friendly world premiere by Boo Killebrew, with music by Heather Christian, lyrics by Lucy Thurber, additional music and lyrics by Christine Bile, and directed by Jenna Worsham, tells the story of one unforgettable summer in the Berkshires.
