“Ledbetter and his fiancé decide to undergo “premarital counseling” through an 800 kilometer walk across Spain on El Camino de Santiago!

From press release:

The Road to Santiago is a new 60-minute solo show by Rory Ledbetter having its World Premier at the Toronto Fringe Festival. Ledbetter and his fiancé decide to undergo “premarital counseling” through an 800 kilometer walk across Spain on El Camino de Santiago! Armed with a guidebook, shoes, backpacks, and a lot of issues concerning their relationship, they meet a cast of characters, survive an army of blisters and physical injuries, and find peace in their relationship. Santiago is a high energy solo show that is hilarious and full of heart.


Rory Ledbetter is an award-winning Actor, Director, Writer, and Vocal Coach residing in Oxford, MS, and he just got married (November 2015)! He teaches Voice, Speech, and Acting at The University of Mississippi and is a certified Associate Teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework®. Rory’s 1st solo show,  A Mind Full of Dopamine, which chronicled his personal journey through gambling addiction, won multiple awards across Canada including the “Steve Sauvé Spirit of the Fringe Award” at The Ottawa Fringe Festival, the “Spirit of the Fringe Award” at The Vancouver Fringe Festival, and the “Westey Award for Best Performer” at The Calgary Fringe Festival. This July, Rory will perform A Mind Full of Dopamine as the Featured Presentation at the 30th National Conference on Problem Gambling in Tarrytown, New York.
