Heritage Repertory Theatre invites audience to its "Picnic"

Heritage Repertory Theatre invites audience to its "Picnic"

Michael Bailey
Madge (Mary Margaret Anderson) finds there's more to romance than a nice personality when she meets the young drifter Hal (David Lee) in the Heritage Repertory Theatre's production of the Pulitzer-prize winning play, "Picnic," which debuts July 7 at Culbreth Theatre.

Culbreth Theatre's stage is transformed into a backyard in a 1950's Midwestern town for the Heritage Repertory Theatre's production of "Picnic," which opens July 7.

William Inge's Pulitzer-prize winning drama, directed by Douglas Sprigg, is the second production in HRT's summer season of plays and musicals. "Picnic" tells the story of a young vagabond named Hal Carter who awakens the passions of the women of a sleepy Kansas town.

The play runs July 7, 8, 10, 25, 28, 31 and Aug. 3 at 8 p.m., with a 2 p.m. matinee July 29.

The theater company will open three more shows in less than two weeks: "Same Time Next Year" by Bernard Slade, runs July 13-16, 26, 29 and Aug. 2 (matinee Aug. 5); the Fats Waller musical "Ain't Misbehavin'" runs July 20-23, 27, Aug. 1, 4 and 5; and "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," based on Charles M. Schulz's comic strip "Peanuts," will be performed in Helms Theatre July 18-Aug. 5 (matinee Aug. 5).

Tickets are available at the HRT box office. Individual tickets are $25, with student/child tickets at $14 and senior citizens' at $21. Reduced season tickets to all four remaining productions are available for $75, with discounts for students/children and seniors. For information, call 924-3376.
