Folktown: The Story of the Fifth Mary
April & May 2005
A play by Robert Hollis in collaboration with Atwater~Donnelly
All photos and movie clips taken by Ellen Smith Pratt, the great Folktown "roadie."

Here are a few photos and movie clips of rehearsals and performances of FOLKTOWN, one of the best projects Aubrey and Elwood feel they have ever done! Folktown is an original play, written by Bob Hollis, based on 22 songs in the Atwater~Donnelly repertoire. Approximately 100 people from Foster and neighboring towns were involved to create a powerful and exhuberant community experience. All six performances were to full houses and sell-out crowds. Read the original Press Release for more information. Enjoy!

In the dressing room ... Amy Hollis played the Fifth Mary, the heroine of the play.

Muses Aubrey and Elwood sing in "Museland" at one of the dress rehearsals.
