Dramatic comedy embraces small town lifeWritten by Admin
Haywood Arts Regional Theater in Waynesville will kick off its 29th main stage season this month with a stage adaptation of the popular series of novels “Welcome to Mitford.”
Shows will be at 7:30 p.m. April 19, 20, 26 and 27 and May 2, 3, and 4, and at 3 p.m. April 21, 28 and May 5.
Adapted by Robert Inman and based on the Mitford books by Jan Karon, the series contains nine novels, all set in the fictional town of Mitford and centering on the character of Father Tim Kavanaugh, an Episcopal priest in a small North Carolina town.
The play takes the highlights and condenses the action into two acts, spanning 10 years. Father Tim moves from scene to scene, as the audience is introduced to over 20 characters in the town.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $10 for students and teachers. There will be a special $6 discount ticket for students and teachers for Thursday and Sundays.
