Freed-Hardeman University Theatre will open its 2012-13 season with “August Snow” in the Black Box Theatre Oct. 11-13.
“August Snow,” set in North Carolina in 1937, concerns Neal Avery, a man who finds his loyalty being pulled in various directions. He learns what it means to be a son to his overzealous mother, a husband to his newly married wife, Taw, and friend to Porter Farwell. Avery’s lack of growth and decisiveness has frustrated Taw into giving him an ultimatum. She tells him to recommit himself to her or continue to spend every night out drinking with Porter.
Ryan Pickens, a senior theatre performance major and Bible minor originally from Clemmons, N.C., is directing “August Snow.” Starring in this play as Neil Avery are sophomore Kevin Record from Meridianville, Ala., and freshman Abby Lambert, from Milan, Tenn., who portrays Taw Avery. Also appearing in the play are freshman Jackie Deming, from Parma, Ohio, senior Robby Robertson, from Atlanta, Mich., and freshman Maddie Alden, from College Grove, Tenn.
“August Snow” will be presented at 7 p.m. each evening with a matinee at 2 p.m., Oct. 13 as well. Tickets may be ordered at email@example.com
