Not Far From The Apple TreeBy Logan Carpenter | February 20th, 2014 | Category: Arts and Entertainment, Lead Story | No Comments »
On Wednesday evening, the Glenville State College Theatre group opened “The Apple Tree”, a musical comedy play that features three different stories in on whole play: a retelling of the story of Adam and Eve, a story of a jealous lover who tries to keep her husband, and finally a 60s version of the classical tale of Cinderella. This play was a big hit during the 1966 Broadway season with a Tony Award for best actress that was given to Barbara Harris. The play itself is written in its own style but the storyline and themes run through the whole three stories of the play. This play will feature the great acting of GSC’s own students, such as Samantha Wolford, Luna Acree, Kurtis Richards, and many more members of the Theatre Group. You can even enjoy the wonderful singing that is presented throughout the play as you watch the tales unfold before you in a wonderful fashion.
“The Apple Tree” will be continue Thursday through Saturday, February 7 p.m. The play will run for an hour and a half with one intermission to allow the audience to get up and stretch while the actors prepare the final parts of the play. Admissions for the play will be $2 for students and $5 for general admissions.
