A BSC student company of 31 will be involved in the production, along with a 10-year-old guest actor who will play the role of Tommy.  The play features Matt Adams, a freshman musical theatre major from Hueytown, in the role of Richard, and Martin Landry, a senior musical theatre major from Ragland, who portrays Nat.

"This is a production for the entire family," says Michael Flowers, BSC professor of theatre.  “Unique to this production will be an extensive change of sets using the College Theatre stage's lift-revolve mechanism, as well as the reconfiguration of audience seats.”

Performances are April 26-28 at 7:30 p.m. and April 29 at 2:30 p.m. in the BSC College Theatre, Mainstage.  General admission tickets are $10; $5 for students.  For tickets and additional information, contact the College Theatre Box Office at 205/226-4780.
