Limelight Theatre: Foxfire
November 30 to December 23, 2018 | See below for details at Limelight Theatre, Inc.
Please Note: This event is from 2018.
The Limelight Theatre presents Foxfire, a revived Broadway classic that originally starred Hume Cronym and Jessica Tandy, on the main stage from November 30 to December 23, 2018. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2:00 p.m. on Sundays, including a Preview Night on November 29 and a Terrific Tuesday showing on December 4.
Foxfire, written by Susan Cooper, with music by Jonathan Brielle, tells the story of an elderly woman in Southern Appalachia. Annie Nations lives on her mountain farm all alone, but only if you don't count the ghost of her husband Hector. Their relationship drives the action of the play, as Annie is forced to deal with a ruthless real estate developer who wants to purchase her land and the return of her adult son, a country singer who is now responsible for his two children after his wife ran away. The play pays tribute to the resiliency and spirit of hardworking country folk.
This production is directed by Harolyn Sharpe, with Shelli Long as music director. The cast includes Meganne Johnson as Annie, Brian Johnson as Dillard, Rich Nowell as Hector, Carrington Tate as Prince, Elizabeth Gerhardt as Holly, and Ron Price as the doctor.
