Shower of Gold & An Evening with Percy
Ms Angela Bullard performs the role of Mrs. Katie Rainey in Shower of Gold from the book Golden Apples by Eudora Welty copyright © 1947 by Eudora Welty, renewed 1975 by Eudora Welty.
Learn of Miss Snowdie Hudson and her courtship, marriage and heartache of Mr. King McClain who took off leaving his straw hat on the banks on the Big Black River as if he had drown. No one knows so much as a neighbor and Ms. Katie can almost bring herself to talk about it to our passer-bys, as long as they will never see her or Snowdie again. Return to a simpler time by a master story teller, Ms. Bullard paints visions with Eudora Weltys words and together they will captivate an audience with her tales.
Mr. Ed McGuire completes the second half with his self written one man production, An Evening with Percy. Mr. McGuire examines an interesting perspective on life and how at times it seems to repeat itself as he takes on the persona of Percy Kilbride, Hollywood actor best known as Pa Kettle (1947 - 55). Percy finds humor on how things have changed since he roamed the earth as well as how some things remain the same and what may be destined for the future if the trend is not broken. With his down home manner Mr. McGuire will soon feel like an old friend everyone has once known as he will at the very least give the audience a little something to think about.
