Wednesday, May 15 2019 7:30 PM Wednesday, May 15 2019 8:30 PM America/New_York Senior Concert Week 2019 | Sam Diedrich's "TIMBR" OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | The winds of industrial change whistle through the trees. The lumberjills of Illinois Logging speak to each other in hushed voices. Somewhere in the night, a guitar calls out to a fiddle. And, from the darkest depths of the forest… two heroes of old emerge! Deane Carriage Barn, Pit Bennington College

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | TIMBR is a one-act folk-rock musical. Set in a rural Illinois town haunted by the specter of automatization, it is a story of friendship, love, the invincibility of the human spirit, and the power of music and myth. The music incorporates a varied palette of styles including rock, blues, traditional American folk music, and good old-fashioned Broadway razzle-dazzle.

TIMBR features music by Sam Diedrich, and a book and lyrics by Aubrey Lavender-Cook and Aidan Mantho. It is directed by Diedrich and stars Alli Von Hirschberg, Holly Sherrer, Liam Shannon, Dre James, and Jayden White.
