“DO FOLKS STILL FALL IN LOVE?” (Song) from So Proudly We Hailed | A Veteran’s Story
Length: 1:15 

This is a song excerpt from the full short musical which is based on the true story of Arthur Dewsberry. Book and lyrics by Richard Castle, music by Ron Barnett. The episode, “On Distant Shores,” tells a love story that started just before Second Lieutenant Arthur Dewsberry’s deployment to Korea in 1952, and lasted for over sixty years, and features Robert Towers in the title role. “So Proudly We Hailed” features stories of veterans from all over the globe, in musicalizations of true stories, in the Veterans’ own words.

For this webseries, New Musicals Inc. has paired veteran honorees with an artistic team comprised of a composer, lyricist, director, and dramaturg, and then helped to shape their story into a short musical retelling in a digital platform.

This project is hosted by New Musicals Inc.

This activity is supported in part by generous grants from: the Helen and Jose Colton Foundation; the Peter Glenville Foundation; the Anonymous Fund (Marin County); and the California Arts Council, a state agency.
