The Burnt Part Boys is a richly authentic theatrical experience, a piece of musical theatre treasure with a book and score that reverberate as resonantly in audiences’ souls as the acoustic instruments that provide the accompaniment. Locally named The Burnt Part, the Pickaway Coal Company’s South Mountain closed down after an accident in 1952 that resulted in the death of four miners, three of whom left behind children. Ten years later, Jake Twitchell is an employee of that same company, doing the same job that took his own father’s life. Much to the dismay of his younger brother, Pete, the Pickaway Coal Company is going to begin re-mining The Burnt Part. Hailed among critics and creatives, The Burnt Part Boys is the type of riveting, coming-of-age story that has mesmerized listeners, readers and watchers for centuries. The Burnt Part Boys also features a masterfully orchestrated and arranged score that will engross every generation.
