Production Description

Casting an all-female cast for "As it is in Heaven," by Arlene Hutton (Beth Lincks). Project Description: "A play with music that tells the story of a village of Shaker women in 1838. The Shakers were a Utopian religious community which, in the late 18th/early 19th century, successfully established a dozen or more communities in several American states based on a cooperative life of piety, celibacy, work and clean living. Their worship consisted of ecstatic singing, dancing and 'shaking' type movement. Though not a musical, this play incorporates extensive singing of authentic Shaker songs, and some simple dances."
