The Turtling Dithers


Project Announcement ~

The whole Story not a reference to Kate Bush- though we like her

The Turtling Dithers

The Turtling Dithers are working on 'the whole story'; we began telling a story about a man in the Portland Train Station Casserole, continued with Fred and now we are working on Mater.

However to get everyone (the audience, oh and the Dithers too) up to speed, we are combining all three (with an immense amount of editing to make it into one reasonable evening).
See the card below!!!

In 2005 Maurice Colasurdo, Gordon Frazier, and Jay Hamilton
formed
The Turtling Dithers



Dead Man's Piano, Casserole, Fred, and Honor are all folk musicals we have performed. Who are you and how do you know? was an amalgamation of folk, song cycle (more classical), and theatrical in the sense that there was movement and 'acting' involved. Generally we don't move around much just tell a story/stories and sing our songs, sitting still- mostly.
In Spring of 2014 we performed Luv Sungs and Other fairy Tales
In 2015-16 We performed Nothing is what it seems at various locations
