FARMERS BRANCH, TX: The Firehouse Theatre has discovered the “secret of happiness” is providing safe and relevant programming to their patrons. From September 25-October 11, the award-winning theater will present the hit new musical, Daddy Long Legs by John Caird and Paul Gordon. Directed by Firehouse Artistic Director Derek Whitener and music directed by Bethany Lorentzen, this two-person musical starring real-life couple Caitlin Martelle Jones and Preston Lee Isham will be performed and designed to work within the necessary current social distance restrictions.
Whitener explains, “As I was going through the script for Daddy Long Legs, I realized this is the perfect story for being in a pandemic. It evolves around a set of pen pals, so it’s all about making a connection while being isolated from your loved one. The science behind what we can do in our current situation, while keeping everyone as safe as possible, especially on stage singing with each other, was foremost in my thought process. We were able to find the ideal cast of two in our Firehouse family. Caitlin and Preston are getting married in November and, lucky for us, this show is ideal for them. Perfect show, perfect couple!”
Tickets to stream are $20 for a single stream and $30 for a family stream. Subscribers to the 2020 season will receive a complimentary stream code. Stream codes can be purchased starting September 14 and up to one hour before show time at www.thefirehousetheatre.com.
