Growing up in Nashville most of us are familiar with the music of Johnny Cash and have probably even seen the movie on his life, “Walk the Line”. Ensworth students are taking on the task of being the first ever high school production of Ring of Fire-The Music of Johnny Cash. The show guides audiences on a journey through Cash’s storied life and celebrated music from the cotton fields of Arkansas to the Grand Ole Opry stage.
“Ring of Fire is a tribute to one of America’s greatest artists, and it is also a tribute to the America Johnny Cash was born into and that he chose to dignify, celebrate and write about in his songs,” said Tony-award winning creator Richard Maltby, Jr.
“We were thrilled when Donnie Bryan asked about producing a large-cast high school production of Ring of Fire-The Music of Johnny Cash. We could think of no better place than Nashville for this premiere production to take place, and we are looking forward to seeing what the students and staff at Ensworth accomplish,” Jim Hoare, Vice President of Theatrical Rights Worldwide.
Don’t miss your chance to see these students on stage March 5, 6 and 7 at 7 p.m. in the Ensworth High School Theater. Tickets will be $10 and sold during school hours at the front desk of the lower/middle and high school campuses.
