Southern Crossroads features a musical family traveling throughout the country in the 1930s, bringing along a high-energy Southern jamboree with them. When they arrive at a theatre in Virginia, however, they find it out-of-business and everything closed up.
So what's a musical family to do? Hold a jamboree anyway.
Bekki Jo Schneider directed the musical, which features Paul Kerr, Elizabeth Loos, Scott Bradley, Scott Anthony, J.R. Stuart, Jillian Prefach, Cary Wiger, Janet Essenpreis, Chris Bryant, Jim Schweickart, and Mark McCulloch.
More information on the show can be found at the Derby Dinner Playhouse website.
