    The musical Quilters looks at frontier life through the interconnected stories of the women living there, including a woman and her six daughters.  The stories involve girlhood, marriage, fire, illness, death, and everything in between, showcasing the beauty and harshness of such a frontier life.

    Hallie Dizdarevic directed Quilters, which Barbara Damashek and Molly Newman created.  Scott Anthony provided music direction. 

    Following Quilters ,Walden Theatre will present the Young American Shakespeare Festival.  That festival will take place in May.
