Our Current Show!



CLOSED SESSION


Written by Milton Brown
Directed by Daniel Mainwaring
Music Direction by Stan Chapman and Jerry Powell



You won't want to miss this outrageous look at a day in the life of a recording studio!

The MUSICIANS are recording some great music at the Statler Recording Studio but BIFF STATLER, the studio boss, never listens. He only pays attention if you have the right "curves" -- which his wife BRENDA doesn't always appreciate. Especially since she's putting up all the money!

BRENDA battles to win control of the studio with the help of the ROGER, the recording engineer, and CLARA, the office assistant. Brenda is not the only one with something to gain as CLARA tries for her hit song and ROGER searches for the woman of his dreams.

Throughout the play you'll hear a mixture of country, blues and gospel music written by Milton Brown (nationally known and multi-award winning song writer) will make you laugh and cheer.

Milton Brown has had his musical compostions recorded by more than fifty major label recording artists. He's received the Music Creator's Award from the Alabama Music Hall of Fame and the Governor's Award for Lifetime Service to the Film Industry and Related Arts in Alabama. He heads Bama Boy Music and has been involved with: The Association of Independent Video and Filmmakers, The National Academy of Recorded Arts and Sciences, Country Music Association, Nashville Songwriters Association International, and others.

Performed of some of Mobile's best musicians, it'll be sure to knock your socks off!
