Theater at Lime Kiln near Lexington is retiring "Stonewall Country" after this year's three and a half week run. Today, crew members attended to the final details for tonight's opening show. The theater's artistic director says the show has run its course after 20 years, and the message of the musical was in danger of being lost.

[IN Q=I thought the meaning...]

((JOHN HEALEY/LIME KILN ARTISTIC DIRECTOR; I THOUGHT THE MEANING OF THE SHOW WAS BEGINNING TO GET LOST A LITTLE BIT. OBVIOUSLY 20 YEARS FOR A SHOW, POLITICS CHANGE, THE THINGS THAT WERE IMPORTANT BACK IN '85 ARE NOT SO IMPORTANT, DIFFERENT VALUES HAVE BEEN PLACED ON THE PIECE. I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS TIME.))

Stonewall Country will conclude July 3rd, with a gala featuring some members of the original cast and the writers. There's no word on what will go on in Stonewall's place next summer, but it's expected to be another original musical with roots in the Appalachians. (------------)
