Special to the standard
The Brewton Council of the Arts will present “Urban Cowboy: The Musical” at 7 p.m. Monday at the Jefferson Davis Community College Auditorium.
Now “Urban Cowboy” rides again as a Broadway musical, written by the original author and screenwriter, Aaron Latham. “Urban Cowboy: The Musical” is the story of Bud, a new breed of cowboy who's turning heads and looking for love in the biggest honky-tonk in the world. His whirlwind romance and marriage to Sissy are played out against a gritty landscape of oilfields, trailer parks and a sawdust-covered dance floor.
The score features a wide range of toe-tappin' country-western hits, including songs from the original film such as “Lookin' for Love In All the Wrong Places,” “Could I Have This Dance?” and “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” Modern classics by contemporary artists like Clint Black, Toby Keith, and Brooks and Dunn, as well as original compositions, complete the musical line-up.
The performance is only one of several events presented during the year by the Brewton Council of the Arts and is the cornerstone of this year's performances.
The corporate sponsors for the 2006-2007 Brewton Council of the Arts Performance Series are Bank of Brewton, Bank Trust of Brewton, Brewton Medical Center, Citation/Alabama Ductile, The Curtis Finlay Foundation, Earl H. Weaver Management Services, First Progressive Bank, Hines Realty, The Leigh Place, National Decorations, Inc., Smurfit-Stone Container Corp., Stokes &Stokes, P.C., Surgical Associates of South Alabama, and T.R.
