Fringe Festival At CSC Continues With “Hard Travelin’ With Woody”

Centenary Stage Company Continues the 2016-2017 Fringe Festival with the spirit, music and artworks of iconic folksinger, Woody Guthrie, in “Hard Travelin’ With Woody.”

Originally produced at FringeNYC, winner of Best of Fest at Maui Fringe and the Alderman Award at Chicago Fringe, Randy Noojin’s critically acclaimed, award winning multimedia solo show, “Hard Travelin’ with Woody” continues Centenary Stage Company’s annual Fringe Festival set for Nov. 10 to 13 in the Lackland Performing Arts Center.

Written and performed by Randy Noojin, Hard Travelin’ with Woody is a one-man multimedia play featuring the music and artworks of Woody Guthrie. Hop a box car through the Dustbowl with Woody Guthrie and commune with the spirit, stories and songs of America’s iconic folksinger, saint-of-the-workingman and poet-of-the-people as “Woody” plays for a union meeting of striking mineworkers who are on the verge of yielding to vigilante violence.

Writer/Performer Randy Noojin has acted in hundreds of plays regionally and in New York at Circle Repertory, La Mama E.T.C., Circle-in-the-Square, Circle Rep Lab, and The Drilling Company. Noojin holds an M.F.A. from The University of Iowa’s Playwrights Workshop.
