Floyd Collins is based on the real life story of a true American Dreamer. In 1925 Kentucky, chasing dreams of fame and fortune, Floyd searches for a spectacular cave to turn into a tourist attraction. Tragically, Floyd becomes the attraction when he is trapped 200 feet below ground. Alone, but for sporadic contact with his younger brother and a reporter, Floyd fights for his sanity and life as a desperate rescue effort intensifies and America’s first media circus explodes above him. Reporters and gawkers from across the country descend, fueling hysteria and manipulating a breathless nation. This haunting musical boasts a distinguished score as memorable as it is engaging, and tells the transcendent tale of a true American dreamer.
Presented by Front Porch Theatricals, Floyd Collins will be performed from Friday, August 26 to Sunday, September 4. For more information, or to purchase your ticket, visit the Floyd Collins event page.
