Dear Johnny Deere
The Fred Eaglesmith Musical
September 25 – October 18
Often called the Bruce Springsteen of rural Ontario, Juno Award-winning Fred Eaglesmith’s fun and evocative country songs have been masterfully woven into this foot-stompin’ musical.
Lately, not much has been growing on Johnny’s farm – or in his wife’s heart. So when a man from the city comes knocking and says they’re going to put a big ol’ highway through Johnny’s land, he has some tough choices to make.
Sing-a-long melodies and toe-tapping rhythms accompany this Canadian saga. Told with wit, energy and heart, the London Free Press got it right saying, “It will make you laugh, cry, smile and want to cheer.”
“Fred Eaglesmith’s songs captivate…”
– The Guardian, Charlottetown
“DEAR JOHNNY DEERE is a winner…an amazing new musical…think soulful melodies, driving rhythms and lyrics that mix the sugar of wit with the salt of tears.”
