Mini-Reunion for Stonewall Country

— by on July 14th, 2009

When Stonewall Country returned to Lime Kiln Theatre this month for a 25th anniversary run, Washington and Lee was well represented in the production. The musical retelling of Stonewall Jackson’s life premiered at Lime Kiln in the summer of 1984. Don Baker of the Class of 1968 was artistic director at Lime Kiln then and wrote the book while Robin and Linda Williams wrote the music. All three members of that original team participated in the recreation, and Baker was one of the narrators. Rob Mish, director of W&L’s Lenfest Center and a 1976 W&L grad, directed the performance, which featured Doug Harwood, Class of 1974, as the drummer with the ensemble and Tabbitha King, a 2009 alumna, in the role of Amy. The production ran four nights and was sold out every night.
