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.

Originally intended to be a children’s musical, the piece has gone through many transformations. LaRayne Topp, a freelance writer who has written articles for the Norfolk newspaper, heard about Swanson through Dan Cain, who helped him record his first album. She contacted Swanson because she wanted to write a children’s musical, and he agreed to set the text to music.
