Jacobs Takes the Stage in Musical at the Garden Theatre
Local public figures are taking to the stage of The Garden Theatre on selected nights for their celebrity roles in The Music Man, a self-produced musical with a cast of about 60 performers.
Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs will perform her walk-on role as the farmer’s wife during the song “Iowa Stubborn” in the second scene of the musical, on Saturday, May 12, at 8:00 p.m.
“As mayor, one of my top priorities is economic development and the arts are vital to our rich quality of life providing entertainment, jobs and dollars spent at local businesses, ” Jacobs said of her upcoming role in The Music Man. “I’m happy to play a small part to draw attention to the great value added by the arts to our community.”
The Music Man is the third self-produced musical in as many years at the Garden Theatre, following The Sound of Music last season. Its large cast of performers and dozens of crew members allow for a great deal of community involvement.
Located in the heart of historic downtown Winter Garden on Plant Street, the Garden Theatre is a not-for-profit community organization committed to enriching, engaging, and entertaining through creative experiences.
