    Love Makes a Home: The Life of Rebecca Boone on August 2nd

    The Life of Rebecca Boone offers an insider's view of the wild and rugged adventures of this frontier woman, the wife of Daniel Boone. The production, written by Kiesa Kay and starring Terra Currie-Feather who plays Rebecca, is accompanied by period-appropriate music from internationally renowned fiddler Bruce Greene. Rebecca and Daniel Boone met at a dance, and Bruce Greene chose the historically authentic tunes for the play. Kay said “He plays tunes in the old time way that Rebecca herself would have heard. I envisioned the play as a kind of duet between the actor and the fiddler.

    The performance will take place Thursday, August 2nd at 6 p.m. Tickets available online at altapassorchard.org and at the door. (Tickets are a suggested $10.00 donation. Pay it Forward: Buy a ticket for someone who may not attend otherwise.)
    Q&A with Terra Currie

    When Love Makes a Home: The Life of Rebecca Boone comes to the Orchard at Altapass at 6 pm on Thursday, Aug. 2, Terra Currie will join fiddler Bruce Greene on stage. We caught up with Terra to ask her a few questions about what it means to her.

    Terra Currie remembers performing as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz in her bedroom before her stuffed animals at the early age of five and since then something inside her continues to "know" acting as one of her greatest callings. Terra studied acting in Greeley Colorado at the University of Northern Colorado and has performed on stages throughout the United States. She has performed locally with both Asheville Community Theatre and Montford Park Players and was inspired by her experiences with them to start a performance troupe Theater ~on~ Cedar in Carrollton, Georgia where Terra has built herself a home. Some of her favorite roles have been Juliet in Romeo and Juliet, Martha in A Piece of My Heart, and Hedda in Hedda Gabler. Aside from performing, Terra also enjoys building, farming, writing books with her husband, and playing music.
