Children's production set for audiences in November at historic Barclay Theater

Krayon Kids Musical Theater is inviting the public to its 27th annual musical, "Nashville Bound 2.0," in November at the historic Barclay Theater in Oregon City.COURTESY PHOTO: KRAYON KIDS - Desley Stevens will star in the upcoming production of 'Nashville Bound 2.0' at the Barclay Theater in Oregon City.

"Nashville Bound 2.0" revisits Krayon Kids' original production from 2006 as the cast of 31 children between the ages of 5 and 18 sets out to revive a story of music, pursuing your dreams and friendship.

The script of "Nashville Bound" follows a talented young artist, Desley Star, and her best friend as they embark on a musical journey through a cruise line, New Orleans. In seeking the heart of country music, the characters discover that every artist needs support along the way.

When a stage and screen diva pops into their lives, the journey toward stardom begins. With the American Songwriting Competition just around the corner and Desley needing to find a full band, the musical promises bluegrass sounds and foot-stompin' productions as the cast heads to Nashville.

Krayon Kids organizers said audience members will marvel at the costumes and dance productions where laughter abounds and a variety of music keeps energy and interest high for the whole family.
