(June 16-June 26)
Six women gather at church during World War II to roll bandages and plan the church's 75th anniversary. Edith, the pastor's wise-cracking wife, oversees the activity. All the women hold secrets and secret longings. Twenty-five years later, the women reunite and reveal things that couldn't be said earlier. These six very different women find comfort, forgiveness and redemption in each other. The play has won multiple play-writing awards.
MUSICAL INTERLUDE ~ June 30-July 3 ~
"A Musical Review"
Nocturne ~ by C. Robert Jones
(July 7-July 17)
This two-character play tells the story of a famous artist, a woman who is a white transplanted Southerner who is blinded in an accident and can no longer paint. She hires a street-wise young black man to come in and read for two hours a day. The friction is immediate and as layers are peeled away, surprising truths emerge.
Cheaper by the Dozen ~ Adapted by Christopher Sergel
(July 28 thru August 7)
Based on the autobiographical novel by Frank Gilbreth, Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey about a real-life family with a father who is a pioneer of industrial efficiency, this perennial favorite always amuses and delights audiences. The children go along with father's efficiency practice on his own family until his daughter, Anne, rebels and wants more freedom. Dad has his reason for teaching the children to help organize the household, but it's a secret from the children.
Produced by WEAVERVILLE EYE ASSOCIATES - with area Youth Theater Groups.
