Amana- Billy Bishop Goes To War opens April 9 and runs through April 26 on the Old Creamery’s Studio Stage, with shows on Thursdays and Sundays at 2:00 pm and on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 pm. There will be a special Saturday matinee on April 11 at 2:00 pm. There will not be an evening performance on April 11. The Old Creamery Theatre’s Studio Stage is and intimate venue that features classics and new, exciting, and fresh material as well located in Middle Amana at 3023 220th Trail.

From a rowdy, unruly, and impetuous youth to a respectable, venerated veteran, Billy Bishop Goes To War follows a boy’s journey into manhood. Canadian WWI fighter pilot, Billy Bishop, defies all expectations and becomes a top ace — a “ hero in the sky.” With laudable historical accuracy and catchy tunes, this play illustrates Bishop’s intimate thoughts about his odyssey through the turbulent trials and tribulations of war. Billy Bishop Goes To War is written by John Gray and Eric Peterson. The show stars Vaughn Irving as Billy Bishop and Andrew Crowe as the narrator and pianist.

Tickets are $30 for adults and $18.50 for students. Call the box office for tickets and information at 319-622-6262 or go here.
