Heather Moore had a vision of brining a family friendly, military honoring show to Mountain View and that dream is about to become reality. On Friday at 7 p.m., the doors of the famous Cash’s White River Theater (formerly the “Hoedown”) will once again open thanks in large part to Heather Moore.
The theater has been closed for over a year and the town has been missing the lights and sounds of the music and comedy that once graced its stage. Now, the Cash’s White River Theater will be refreshed with new talent and a more multimedia performance.
It all started about two months ago when Heather and her husband went on a trip to Mountain View. Heather asked a simple question to the famous “Aunt Minnie” at Aunt Minnie’s Yellow House (a local store owned and operated by the former first lady of Mountain View Comedy). That question was, “Are you still doing shows at the Theater?” When a “No, we have decided to retire” was the answer, Heather’s next question (for no apparent reason) was “Is your Theater for Sale?” Those two questions started a whirlwind to what has led to the re-opening of the Cash’s White River Theater. It will even host a friend of Heather’s as the performer, Michael Kelley and his show “Voices that Change”.
Heather knew that Michael Kelley’s show was unlike any other in the state. Michael uses his over 20 years of experience performing vocal impressions for our troops with the USO and performing on various cruise lines. He uses this experience along with his varied vocal talents to give a first class, funny and entertaining experience to his audiences. “Voices that Change” is a family friendly Las Vegas style show that will keep the audience in side-splitting laughter with Michael’s comedy, audience participation and numerous uncanny vocal impressions.
Michael Kelley will perform at the famous “Cash’s White River Theater” (formerly the “Cash’s White River Hoedown”) at 507 Sylamore Avenue in Downtown Mountain View, Arkansas. Starting Aug. 15 (Mountains, Music and Motorcycles weekend), the shows will be every Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (870)214-2326 or visit the box office at the address above. General admission tickets are $18 (children, senior, and active/retired military discounts are available). You can also visit Michael’s Website at www.voicesthatchange.com.
