Animal Engine Presents “Petunia and Chicken” at Orlando Fringe.

From the creators of last year’s hit DARLINGS comes a 2 person epic prairie love story inspired by the works of Midwest author Willa Cather.
Petunia, an indomitable immigrant girl determined to tame the wild land around her, meets Chicken, a right smart boy with dreams of great adventures. As the joys of their youth give way to the harsh realities of adulthood, they struggle to stay together. Sprawling fields of wheat, bustling train stations, rain-soaked kisses, wind-blown hair, and the rest of Petunia and Chicken’s world are brought to life with imagination, movement, and song.
Created and performed by Animal Engine Theatre Company Co-Artistic Directors Carrie Brown and Karim Muasher, with direction from frequent collaborator Melinda Jean Ferraraccio.
All performances in Yellow Venue (Goldman Theater at the Orlando Shakespeare Center)

Dionne Warwick, one of the most successful female singer-songwriters of all time, will make this a Valentine’s Day to remember. Famous for hit songs such as Walk on By, Do You Know the Way to San Jose?, I Say a Little Prayer for You and Alfie, Warwick’s winning partnership with Burt Bacharach and Hal David helped her become one of the world’s greatest hit-makers.

Only the true greats get to contemplate precisely how to celebrate 50 years in the music business. Dionne Warwick thought long and hard about how she should mark the five decades since her debut single, Don’t Make Over in 1962. That song – written especially for her by the songwriting team of Bacharach and David – became a Top 40 hit on Billboard’s Hot 100, sparking an incredible run of success that has seen her chart over 50 U.S. singles, win five Grammys® and sell one hundred million records.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8232. Commenting on the engagement. Ms Warwick said, “It will be an honor to perform at such an auspicious benefit, especially one that raises so much money for the veterans, on Valentine’s Day.”
