Tomell: Musicals also will be featured at the theater?
Langan: Frank Roberts is putting on "The Music Man" in July. [And] I reached out to Mike and his brother, Jerry Sigman. We're going to [feature their] Joan of Arc musical from March 23 to April 1.
Tomell: Jerry, tell us a little bit about you and your brother and what you are bringing to Pheasant Run besides the musical "Joan."
Jerry Sigman: We are an independent theatrical production company and we produce our own original musicals. My brother Michael's background [is] rock performer; my background is in theater. In October, [we'll present] "Etude," a fairy tale musical about vampires, and in December, another original, a children's musical, "Rumpelstiltskin." We [also help book some] acts like [the] Rise concert.
