The Whole Backstage Community Theatre is presenting its 2019 summer musical, The Will Rogers Follies: A Life in Revue beginning this week. Performances are July 19, 20, 25, 26, 27 at 7 p.m., and Sunday matinees on July 21 and 28 at 2 p.m.

Several Arabians are in the production.

“We are so fortunate that Steve Downs is reprising his memorable and masterful portrayal of Will Rogers from our previous Whole Backstage productions. And for a special treat, we are bringing back our professional roper, Bruce Brannen from Montgomery, to entertain us with his captivating lasso act,” said director and choreographer Jane Kohl.
