Mary Sue Price will revive ‘Streets of Gold,’ a musical set in a family music show in 1990s Branson, working closely with folk duo, Robin and Linda Williams, who wrote the music and lyrics. We’ll update the material and present at least one public in-progress reading featuring local actors and musicians. It’s the first step toward a professional production of the show which considers how the damming of White River permanently changed Ozarks culture.
