In 2008, the Williamston Theatre embarked on a unique three-year project called Voices of the Midwest. After gathering stories from people throughout the Midwest region, four Michigan playwrights used the stories as inspiration for songs, scenes, poems, and monologues. That work became three unique theatrical experiences Maidens, Mothers, and Crones: Voices from Women of the Midwest, Flyover, USA: Voices from Men of the Midwest, and Home: Voices from Families of the Midwest. In this year of the coronavirus, we have revisited the material and pulled together an audio compilation of our favorite pieces.

Featuring: Katherine Banks. Sandra Birch, Casaundra Freeman, Tobin Hissong, Dan Johnson, John Lepard, Chris Purchis, Suzi Regan and Emily Sutton-Smith

Musicians: Suzi Regan and Andrew Wilt

Additional Sound Engineering: Max Caselli

Harriet Oriona
By Annie Martin

Directed, Edited and Sound Designed by Tony Caselli

Download available for purchase

Harriet Oriona is a professor of Horticulture, a part-time Astronomer, and full time lonely.  Her life needs a change, but she won’t see it, so when the universe intervenes and she makes a discovery that rocks the world, she finds her entire existence turned upside down.  Can she weather the cosmic storm that takes the whole town of Williamston by storm?

This charming piece is the next installment in our Strolling Stories Series of audio projects, and it’s the perfect antidote to the cynicism of 2020. You can listen to it anywhere, of course, but it’s specifically designed to be enjoyed while here in Williamston, Michigan!  We recommend putting in your headphones, listening to the piece on your phone, and enjoying a walk around our lovely downtown.  Specifically, start on a bench outside City Hall (at 161 East Grand River).  Have a seat on a bench there, plug in your headphones, and hit play.  You’ll listen to Act One there, and at intermission you’ll get instructions on how to get to nearby McCormick Park for Act Two!

Featuring: Tony Caselli, Aral Gribble, Jeanne Hicks-Caselli, Sarab Kamoo, John Lepard, Chris Purchis and Emily Sutton-Smith
