Tickets: $15/$13 Film Festival Members and Students
Renowned entertainer Richard Byford will bring his live stage show “The Heart of a Gypsy Troubadour” from production consultant Lindsay Wagner to the Mary D. Fisher Theater for two special shows! His Sedona stop is part of a tour across the country. Richard Byford has had a dream for many years of writing, producing and performing in his own one-man theatrical production. He has distilled his many adventures across Europe and America, his battle with cancer, and the motley crew of characters he has encountered over the years into a solo performance like no other. He performs stories from his travels — highlighted with original songs — in this heartfelt and sometimes very personal look into “The Heart of a Gypsy Troubadour”. For more information or to purchase tickets please visit the Sedona International Film Festival.
