Beginning tonight, St. Andrews University’s Theatre Department will present the production — Twists in Time.
From all that we have heard, the show should be entertaining with elements of comedy, mystery and a little science fiction thrown in. It has been described as a radio-era show recreated live on stage.
For those that complain that they are sick of having nothing to do in Scotland County, here is your antidote.
The play is directed by Chris Wood, who has given Scotland County some fine past productions. The play’s six actors will voice 22 separate characters.
Twists in Time” will play tonight, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Morris-Morgan Theater on the campus of St. Andrews. On Saturday, there will also be a 1 p.m. showing.
While on the topic of local talent, we should also mention a show put on right before the Thanksgiving holiday by the Scotland County Literacy Council.
The council was able to raise $1,000 during its its biannual murder mystery dinner. That production, called Gobble, Gobble, Death, and Trouble, was directed by Rick Hodges. It focused on six suspects who tried to exonerate themselves of the murder of a famous turkey chef.
The characters were played by local actors David Blackmon, Jaclyn Blackmon, John Troutman, Kitty Baum, Renee Portorsnok Jones and Rick Clancy.
That group deserves applause for their talent, but also for helping give back to our community.
We would be remiss if we did not also applaud the local business sponsors who helped make the performance possible. They were: Realty World, Allstate Insurance, BB&T, Habitat for Humanity, Community Drug, Railroad Friction Products Corp. Champs restaurant and Jerry’s Deli.
