"Ring of Fire" by Barter Theatre is a journey through the life of Johnny Cash as told by his music. The "Man in Black" was a man like no other, whether he sang about his love for June Carter Cash, his hard-living, hard-partying ways, or his deep and abiding faith. A multi-talented cast performs Cash's best-known hits. Included are "I Walk the Line," "Ring of Fire," "Folsom Prison Blues" and "Will the Circle Be Unbroken."

Admission is $15 adults, $10 seniors and $5 students. This program is partially supported by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
