Opening up the 2017-2018 Performing Arts Season, the students at Hopewell Valley Central High School will be performing William Inge’s 1953 Pulitzer Prize winning drama, PICNIC. This classic play takes place in a small Kansas town in the 1950’s on the day of the annual Labor Day Picnic. All is peaceful amongst residents of Flo Owens’ and Helen Potts’ homes until the arrival of a handsome drifter with a suspicious past. Family bonds are tested and forbidden love blooms during the course of this epic show.
The cast has been hard at work on this production since the second week of school, and this show promises to be an evening that is not to be missed. Picnic runs Friday, November 3rd and Saturday, November 4th at 7:30pm at the Performing Arts Center at Hopewell Valley Central High School.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for students and senior citizens and can be purchased ahead of time by visiting www.showtix4u.com by searching the title of the show, or at the door on the evening of each performance.
