The Green Room Theatre (10 S. Main Ave, Newton, NC 28658) starting April 6th, 2018.
“Blue” is an extraordinary story that is both heart-warming and historical. The show is actually set in Hickory, NC in 1944. It’s a tale that involves the NC Polio Epidemic, WWII, & a sweet, naive family whose father has gone off to war and leaves them to carry on in a harsh and unprotected environment for which they are ill-equipped. They are a little band made up of a young mother, a 13 yr. old, twin elementary school aged little girls and a pre-school aged boy. The eldest daughter, Ann Fay, is given a set of overalls and instructions by her dad to be the “man of the house” while he’s away…a daunting task for any child.
So much of the simple values and morality of a common way of living in the South are portrayed in “Blue.” The faith that uplifts all of her friends and relatives in Ann Fay’s community are deeply moving. These values and the quiet, simple ways of living still linger in this region of NC, today.
Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm (April 6th, 7th, 13th & 14th)
Sundays at 3:00pm (April 8th & 15th)
