Four County Players, Barbourssville, VA
Four County Players is proud to present our holiday show, THE HOMECOMING, by Earl Hamner, Jr., adapted for the stage by Peter Coy.
The Hamner Theater has graciously lent Four County Players their script to produce Earl Hamner’s classic, heart-warming family holiday tale, THE HOMECOMING. It is the story of the Spencer family (better known as TV’s The Waltons) waiting for the magic of Christmas to arrive – not Santa, but Daddy – told from the perspective of the Adult Clay-Boy, as he remembers the journey he took that snowy evening long ago.
This production is directed by Laurie Lowrance and Frank DeAngelis. The cast, which includes many actual family members, features Ian Amos, Steve Bliss, David Cox, Kevin Cox, Kinsey Cox, Mary Cox, Kimberly Cutshaw, Daisy Floyd, Desiree Floyd, Anna Gazewood, Lisa Grant, Charlie Hatter, Corinne Jennings, Pat Kaplon, Jaimie Parkinson, Sheridan Parkinson, Daniel Robinson, April Taylor, Brandon Taylor, Bryan Timberlake, Rick Zwilling, and starring local theater favorite Bill Smith as the Adult Clay-Boy Spencer.
Rounding out the production staff are Geri Carlson Sauls and Kristen Franklin Heiderstadt as producers, Michael Kneller as scenic designer, John “J.” Stoll as lighting designer, Pat Kaplon as costume designer (with thanks to Boomie Pedersen & Hamner Theater), Kimberly Cutshaw & Lisa Grant as properties mistresses, and Heather Parkinson, Debbie Owen, Kimberly Cutshaw, and Rick Zwilling as the stage management team.
THE HOMECOMING opens Friday, November 30, and runs weekends through December 16. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8PM, Sunday matinees are at 2:30PM. Tickets are $16/Adults, $14/Seniors & Students; $12/Children 12 & under. All Fridays are Half-Price (half off a regular adult-price ticket). This show is appropriate for all ages.
