Local Rock Opera 'La Caroline' Previews In France Before Jax World Premiere

La Caroline: A Rock Opera by Jennifer Chase and John E. Citrone

In the rock opera La Caroline, Jacksonville playwright Jenn Chase’s rock uncovers the French, Timucuan and Spanish lives that converged at Ft. Caroline in 1564 to make Northeast Florida what it is today.

La Caroline and its local cast will be heading to France to workshop the show before it’s world premiere here in Jacksonville in October. And they are looking for your help to get them to the finish line.

Show creator Jenn Chase and actress Eva Matthews joined First Coast Connect guest host Fred Matthews for more on La Caroline.
