Springer Theatre presents: “DEAR JOHNNY DEERE”

“I’m wilder than her, what else can I say…”

Often called the Bruce Springsteen of rural Ontario, Juno Award-winning Fred Eaglesmith’s fun and evocative country songs have been masterfully woven into this foot-stompin’ musical.

Johnny’s got a wife and a farm. But will he for long? This foot-stompin’ musical is set to the fun and evocative songs of Canadian country legend Fred Eaglesmith.
Lately, not much has been growing on Johnny’s farm – or in his wife’s heart. So when a man from the city comes knocking and says they’re going to put a big ol’ highway through Johnny’s land, he has some tough choices to make.
