“The Ballad of Cass” by Missy McCollum, an adaptation of “Cass: The Play” by former Cass resident and playwright, Nicolette Maleckar, will be staged as an outdoor Promenade immersive theatrical experience. At different sites in historic Cass, small groups of viewers will stop to observe and participate in short vignettes, depicting residents and events of Cass at the turn of the 20th Century. The play will focus on the social upheaval of the railroad and lumber industry entering the rural areas of Appalachia, as well as the resilience and spirit of the residents.
The setting will be in the Cass Community Center and around the town is a promenade setting.
Saturday July 16 and 23 matinees at 2 PM and evening shows at 6 PM
Sunday July 17 and 24 matinees at 2PM only.
