Area theater groups offer drama galore in upcoming productions The Henderson Rec Players, the Granville Little Theatre and the Lakeland Theatre Company are all offering upcoming productions this spring and summer to entertain and delight area residents. The Henderson Rec Players will present “The King & I” July 14-16 at E.M. Rollins Elementary School’s auditorium. The story deals with the experiences of a British schoolteacher who is hired by the King of Siam as part of his drive to modernize his country. The relationship between the king and Anna is marked by conflict through much of the play, as well as by a love that neither is able to express. The musical premiered on Broadway

on March 29, 1951 and has become a classic. For more information on tickets, contact Julie Beichner at (252) 431-6091. The Granville Little Theatre will stage a production of “Bye, Bye Birdie” May 5-7 at 7:30 p.m. and on May 7 at 2:30 p.m. at the Oxford City Hall Auditorium. “Bye, Bye Birdie” is a satire on American society, set in 1958. The story was inspired by the phenomenon of popular singer Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the Army in 1957. The rock star character’s name, “Conrad Birdie,” is word play on the name of Conway Twitty. Twitty is best remembered today for his long career as a country music star, but before that, in

the late 1950s, he was one of Presley’s rock ‘n’ roll rivals. The original Broadway production was a Tony Award-winning success. It spawned a London production and several major revivals, a sequel, a 1963 film and a 1995 television production. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and $5 for children under 5. Tickets will be available at the door. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. (1:45 p.m. for matinees). The show is recommended for age 13 and up. At the Lakeland Theatre Company in Littleton, “The Miracle Worker” opens March 25 and continues through April 10. Based on

FROM PAGE FOUR Annie Sullivan’s letters and diaries, “The Miracle Worker” tells the story of an “unteachable” deaf-blind child, Helen Keller, who became world famous for her courage and her intelligence because of the mighty efforts of her teacher.

Based on the legendary comic strip characters. • “Dirty Work At The Crossroads,” July 15-16, July 22-24. A presentation of the Young People’s Theatre Workshop, this 1890’s classic melodrama is filled with songs and audience participation. Follow the heroine Nellie Lovelace as she falls victim to the evil Munro Murgatroyd. Will her true love,

the brave but simple Adam Oakhart, arrive in time to save her? • “Catch Me If You Can,” Aug. 12-13, Aug. 19-20, Aug. 26-28. This murder-mysterycomedy begins when a new groom who has brought his bride to the boss’ mountain lodge for their honeymoon calls in the local police to investigate her sudden disappearance. Enter a woman who insists (over his protests) that she is the missing wife. A priest backs up her story, and then a funny man from the local deli comes calling and now there are two murders to solve! Tickets for all weekend performances are $15 for adults and $8 for children and students. Admission for the school day matinees are $5 per person.

‘A Journey Thru the 20th Century’ planned at Harris Exhibit Hall Preparations are in the works for the next exhibit in the Granville County Historical Society Museum’s Harris Exhibit Hall, located at 1 Museum Lane in Oxford. Pam Thornton, director, is in the process of collecting interesting items for “A Journey Thru the 20th Century,” which will open this spring. The large exhibit room will be divided into 10 rooms, each depicting a decade from 1900-1999 with pieces, pictures, music and other items that define that decade. As visitors walk through each room, they can see the changes made every 10 years in the areas of household, entertainment, education, “fads” of the time, technology, clothing and

other ways which show how Americans have evolved during the last century. The entry room will now be turned into a country store where drinks and snacks may be purchased. “We think this will be an interesting and fun exhibit,” Thornton said. In 2000, the Harris Exhibit Hall opened in space that was formerly the city’s freezer locker plant, located adjacent to the old jail (now the Granville History Museum). This larger facility now houses exhibit rooms, offices, a conference room, workshop, archival room, kitchen and rest rooms. The museum is a member of the North Carolina Grassroots Science Collaborative and frequent science hands-on

exhibits can be enjoyed. Other exhibit topics include history, art and culture. In addition, the Granville History Museum and the gift shop located in the Harris Exhibit Hall will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. Beginning with the Native American period through recent history, the story of the county is told through artifacts, murals, printed material, a movie and oral histories. The historical “heroes” of the county are interpreted in “light boxes.” Topics cover agriculture, education, architecture, industry, jail history and military. Hands-on exhibits are enjoyed especially by the young visitor.
