ST. PAUL & THE BROKEN BONES - HALLOWEEN SHOW!
The singer of the Birmingham, Alabama–based rock and roll soul band St. Paul & The Broken Bones was born and raised in America’s Deep South, a place where social consciousness can still take a backseat to unsavory traditions and where a family’s expectations sometimes supersede all else. Despite the fierce familial love, he enjoyed and constantly gave back while growing up—especially to his father and grandfather—from an early age Janeway realized that the way he thought about the world was a little different from those around him, and he began to seek an outlet from which to share what was in his heart and on his mind. Blessed with a powerful voice, a magnetism for connecting with people, and a gift for making music, he traded in a career in ministry to start his own band.

Knoxville Children's Theatre: The Scarlet Letter
The play will be performed Thursdays at 7 PM, Fridays at 7 PM, Saturdays at 1 PM and 5 PM, and Sundays at 3 PM.
Based on the novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Hester Prynne has committed an inexcusable crime and has confounded her prosecutors by refusing to name her partner in sin. But the man who allows her to protect him suffers more from pangs of conscience than he would have from public humiliation. The climax shows the timeless truth that compassion and understanding are forever more powerful than vengeance and cruelty.
The play is performed by twenty talented young actors from ages 10 to 18. Hester will be played by KCT veteran Maddy Grace Payne, with Arthur Dimmesdale played by Henry Lubke.
The show is directed by Artistic Director Steve Sherman, with assistance by student intern Alyssa Vogt. The play is designed by young student designers from ages 12 to 16. Our lighting designer for this production is Harper Miller. Providing our scenic design are co-designers Tanner White and Alex Montgomery with assistance from Maggie Clower. Charlotte Chrimes and Lauren Norton will design and build the costumes for this production with assistance from Evie Braude. The properties master is Samantha Owens with assistance from Braelyn Read and Caroline Alley. The play’s stage manager is Lydia Baxter.
KCT is East Tennessee’s leading producer of plays for children and families
