With his spaceship wrecked and his trusty computer on the fritz, brave explorer Gulliver finds himself lost in space. While transporting from world to world, Gulliver discovers fighting aliens, foolish Yahoos, robots and more – all who need just as much help from Gulliver as Gulliver needs from them!

This production is part of the Missoula Children’s Theatre’s unique international touring project and is presented locally by MACA for the 19th year, thanks to contributions from MACA Supporters, the Tennessee Arts Commission, and the Monroe County United Way.

Although this Appalachian wildflower didn’t get her first guitar until she was 25, music was always a deep part of her life. “My daddy was a piano player and so was his daddy,” she relates. Sherri King, her biological father’s first cousin, had some minor country hits in the ’70s, but had the distinction of writing, singing and playing on her own recordings — which made her a rare triple threat in Nashville’s good ole boys club. She was also a member of the legendary group Barefoot Jerry, a band of player’s players, and was a featured vocalist with Charlie McCoy’s band.

Rose relocated to Nashville in 1996 where she began seeing her inspirations in person. “As soon as I arrived, I began ‘going to school’ to hear Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Buddy Miller, Malcolm Holcombe, R.B. Morris, David Olney and Marshall Chapman.”

Rose’s next step was making her debut recording. “What’s in the tracks is some hard core blood, sweat and tears from myself and many talented musicians who were generous with their contributions to the arrangements and to the soul of this album,” Rose declares. “I tried to quit music, but it just wouldn’t quit me. I realized I need it like I need food, water, sleep and love. It’s not about chasing fame or any kind of fortune. It’s about a strong connection with who I am. I share my music because it creates a beautiful exchange of energy in my life. It most certainly is medicine for my own soul. If it has the same effect on others, then I’m blessed.”

Jeff Allen has been performing in theaters, on television and radio, and as a keynote for corporate functions and fundraisers around the world. Jeff combines clean, hilarious humor with inspiration like no other comedian working today. He performs sidesplitting standup and, when requested, riveting testimony. As such, he is a favorite at outreach  events where church members can freely invite their unchurched friends, knowing that they’ll be sharing world‐class entertainment. He has been seen on every cable comedy show in the U.S. including Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and VH1’s Standup Spotlight.  His one‐hour special, Happy Wife, Happy Life aired on the Odyssey Channel and Family Net.  He’s been featured on the Grand Ole Opry, the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen and the Montreal Just for Laughs International Comedy Festival ‐ the most prestigious comedy venues in the world.  He also headlined his own national comedy tour, Jeff Allen & Friends: Funny People of Faith.

Jeff’s comedy drives home the humor in everyday family life and the joy derived from a healthy marriage.

It’s the kiss of death to build up a comedian, because there is always the chance that it will make your expectations higher than he is able to deliver. That’s not really a possibility here. Without fail, Jeff Allen knocks it out of the park every time ‐ and not one nasty word. ‐ Gary Chapman
