Dixon Townhall Theatre to showcase premier performance of an original musical
Ten years in the making, Steve Swanson’s original Christmas musical, “We Are Bringing You a Message,” is finally making its way to the stage. The Java Jives, Kenley Udd, Geoff Smith, Clay Lundberg, and other local vocal talents from the area will perform the musical Friday, December 21, at the Dixon Townhall Theatre.

She contacted Swanson because she wanted to write a children’s musical, and he agreed to set the text to music.
