The acclaimed musical “Floyd Collins” is coming to the Carolina Actors Studio Theatre in April.
The musical is based on a true story of the unsuccessful rescue of explorer Floyd Collins from a Kentucky cave in 1925.
“People wonder how you can produce a musical about a man who dies in a cave that audiences will feel good about,” Michael Simmons, the theater’s artistic director, said in a news release. “This show has moving, heartwarming songs and one of the most glorious endings ever written. It is the most brilliant show that I have ever had the privilege to direct.”
The musical runs April 12 to May 13 at the theater, 2424 N. Davidson St. Tickets are $18 to $34.
