The 'Golden Horseshoe' Musical Celebrates Opening Night in Morgantown

Posted: Updated:

The Golden Horseshoe Musical had its opening night at the Metropolitan Theater in Morgantown the evening of Thursday, October 24.

The musical is written by two native West Virginians, David Scoville and R. J. Nestor, and is meant to be a celebration of West Virginian history. It's based on a father helping his son study for the Golden Horseshoe exam.

"The most important thing for me is that we take away from this a celebration of who we are," said Nestor, the director, co-writer, and composer for the Golden Horseshoe Musical. "You know, because it's our history we sometimes look at the things that are not so good from our past as well as the things that are good. But the take away from that is that the next 150 years are going to be even better than the last 150 years."

The musical will also have performances Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, October 27 at 2 p.m.

There are also performances for students including one of around 1,300 eighth graders Friday morning.

The writers hope to make the musical a touring show around West Virginia.
