The Glebe was rammed on Saturday 18th November for JKB Productions performance of Ring of Fire – the life story of Johnny Cash. The performance raised an astonishing £1,185.73 for DayCare funds.
The production came to Crich straight after its UK premier in Derby. Ring of Fire tells the remarkable life story of America’s brilliant singer/songwriter, Johnny Cash. The story is told through narration and his music, with over 2 dozen classic songs!
A cast of seven well-known local actor/musicians painted a musical portrait of the Man in Black, with favourites including “I Walk The Line”, “A Boy Named Sue”, “If I Were A Carpenter”, and many others. The show is full of surprises, both in his life story, but also in the poetry and humour of many of his lyrics. Johnny Cash is probably much under-rated as a song-writer if this show is anything to go by.
The huge audience hugely enjoyed the show, with its great musicianship, interesting story line, and outstanding songs – an evening to remember!
The cast and back-stage crew very generously donated their time and fee to the Glebe DayCare funds, for which we thank them!
A huge thanks also to the team of volunteers at the Glebe, who make putting on shows like this possible.
