Telling Tales: Voices of the South stage new works



Voices Ugly Duckling
  • Voices' "Ugly Duckling"
As I've pointed out on this blog several times in the recent past, Voices of the South—which opens a new original work this weekend— has got it going on. They've got a brand new theater space, one of their original creations will open Off Broadway next summer, their signature children's show The Ugly Duckling just celebrated its 10th anniversary, and now the company's Artistic Director Jerry Dye has been nominated for a Southern Writer's Federation award for Cicada, a years-in-the-making performance that sold out much of its summer run at TheatreWorks.

"It sure feels nice to get an email from [Crimes of the Heart playwright] Beth Henley, says Dye of his notification. "Very excited. Nervous as a cat."

For Goodness Sake, a new one-woman-show written and performed by Memphis-based storyteller Elaine Blanchard opens tonight and runs through Sunday, October 25 at Theatre South inside First Congregational Church.
