Posted: Tuesday, February 8, 2011 8:01 pm
Jason Petty in “Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes” will be playing in Jackson on the Ned R. McWherter West Tennessee Cultural Arts Center stage Feb. 25 at 7 p.m.
Petty has made a striking impression on New York’s Theatre District, starring in “Hank Williams: Lost Highway,” which played to sold-out audiences at the Little Shubert Theatre. Audiences and critics alike were taken aback by Petty’s amazing acting ability in his portrayal of Hank Williams.
The veteran actor and singer has performed in theaters across the United States, Canada and Europe. He began portraying the country music legend, Hank Williams, in 1996 at the world-famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Since that time, Petty appeared in national tours of “Lost Highway” and “Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes,” a musical revue which Petty authored and in which he starred.
His acting ability has afforded Petty roles in film, television and theatre. His musicianship and song writing abilities have won him numerous performances on the Grand Ole Opry and the honor of being invited to perform with the most distinguished songwriters and producers at the exclusive Blue Bird Cafe in Nashville.
This performance is made possible through a touring grant with the Tennessee Arts Commission.
Tickets are $15 and $20. Call (731) 425-8589 or go to the Jackson Civic Center Box Office, 400 South Highland for tickets or more information.
