The theatre season opens with The Diviners, a depression-era fable written by Jim Leonard.
Description: In a tiny town named Zion, that which gives life takes it away. Buddy Layman is the town idiot, but a charming one. What's left of Buddy after his mother saved him from drowning is an innocent but boundlessly curious mind, and a compelling gift for sensing water coupled with an intense fear of it. When the slipping preacher C.C. Showers, looking for a new life, stumbles into town looking for an anonymous job, the locals immediately pin on him the badge of savior. What comes next turns everything upside down, as C.C. makes a connection with Buddy in a way no one else has, and both are forced to face their fears in the plays dramatic conclusion.
The show will run Oct. 30 - Nov. 1 as well as Nov. 6-8. Curtains are at 8:00 p.m. with Saturday matinees at 2:00 p.m.
