Bruce Lumpkin and Cindy Jordan are two individuals that are very familiar with success. They recently decided to collaborate for the piece, “Miss Pearl’s Parlor.” It all started with Jordan sending Lumpkin a message on Facebook, wanting to talk about a project.
The musical focuses on the town of San Angelo and its’ history, so where better to kick things off than in San Angelo? Jordan says that the town is the “perfect go-to place to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the 1920’s”.
Not only does the play take place in the 1920’s, but it emphasizes on various items, such as the Santa Rita Oil Well discovery and the girls that worked at Miss Hattie’s at the time, and how they got there.
The duo’s goal is to bring the community together for auditions in May, and from there to host a following Parlor-reading in June. The production encourages all interested local talent to swing by, once a date has been released.
Director Bruce Lumpkin emphasizes that great projects like this take time and patience. However, once the time comes to hit the stage, the wait is plenty worth it.
