Derby Dinner Playhouse opened a new musical Tuesday called "Southern Crossroads." The show will run through Sept. 29.

The musical is set in the midst of the Great Depression, and follows a traveling family of singers and musicians who arrive in Virginia for work, only to find that the theater they're meant to perform in has been closed.

A wide variety of music is featured in "Southern Crossroads" from bluegrass and ragtime to gospel. More than 20 songs are featured in the musical, including "I'll Fly Away," "Keep On The Sunnyside," "House of the Rising Sun," and "Midnight Special."

The play was originally created and produced for the Wayside Theatre in Middletown, Va., in 2009, with a book by Warner Crocker and the musical selections and arrangements by Steve Przybylski. Derby Dinner's production of "Southern Crossroads" is under the direction of Bekki Jo Schneider with musical direction by Scott Bradley.
