WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Woody Guthrie Show, a tribute to the songwriter, folklorist, and labor leader who was also a longtime Theatricum friend, returns to the The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum. The spirit of Woody Guthrie is brought to life through his own words and music in this annual event performed by members of the Geer family and their friends, including Peter Alsop, Ellen Geer, Thad Geer, Wally High, Laura Kass, Melora Marshall, and Linda Wilcox. Developed and often performed by Theatricum founder Will Geer along with family and friends, the show paints a musical portrait of the self-described "rambling man from Oklahoma." The tribute is built upon songs such as "Pastures of Plenty," "Worried Man," "Union Maid" and "This Land is My Land," and incorporates selections from published and unpublished writings of this seminal American artist who was considered a member of the Geer family. Note: The amphitheater is terraced into the hillside of the rustic canyon, so audience members are advised to dress casually and bring cushions for the stadium seating. The Botanicum Cafe serves snacks, salads and sandwiches, and picnickers are welcome on the grounds before or after the performances.
