'Billy Blythe' preview coming soon

Posted By on Wed, Nov 10, 2010 at 9:20 AM


Mark your calendars, people. A preview of Bonnie Montgomery and Brit Barber’s self-described “modern, folk” opera about Bill Clinton’s boyhood, “Billy Blythe,” is just around the corner. At 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19, Montgomery and Barber will debut three scenes at the Woman’s City Club.

From an official release: “The scenes will include a steamy New Orleans love theme between Roger and Virginia Clinton, an aria with Billy and Virginia about his deceased father, a tableau following big wins at the Oaklawn horse races and a night of domestic drama in the Clinton household.”

Admission is a $10 suggested donation. Advanced tickets are available at billyblytheopera.com or at White Water Tavern, which will host an afterparty.

See the cast list on the jump.

The cast includes:

Chris McKim as Billy Blythe
Evan Jones as Roger Clinton
Kelley Ponder as Virginia Clinton
Jaimee Jensen as Dixie Seba
Mandi Harper as Margie Mitchell
Aaron Baker as Gabe Crawford
Ronald McDaniel as Police Officer
Director: Jeremy Bishop
Accompanist: Giovanni Antipolo
