Theatre Columbus State to perform October 17-20
The students in the Theater program will present their new comedy “1959 Pink Thunderbird
Convertible” which is actually two plays by James McLure. Columbus State’s Frank Barnhart directs. The first act, “Laundry
and Bourbon,” is the story of three small-town women who love to gossip. The second,
“Lone Star,” is about Roy, a man who loves three things: his country, his beautiful
wife and his 1959 pink Thunderbird Convertible — not necessarily in that order. The
play will be performed Wednesday, October 17 through Saturday, October 20 at 8:00 p.m. in the Nestor Hall Auditorium. There will also be a 3:00 p.m. matinee
on Thursday, October 18. Admission is free. This play is for mature audiences only!
