The classic John Steinbeck tale of two drifters in search of work in Depression-era California, OF MICE AND MEN, opens at the Roxy Regional Theatre on March 26 at 8pm, for a limited run.
It stars Gili Getz as George and Kevin Hauver as the simple-minded Lennie, two men who have nothing in the world except each other and a dream that one day they will have some land of their own. Their hopes are doomed, however, as Lennie, struggling against extreme cruelty, misunderstanding and jealousy, becomes a victim of his own strength. Directed by John McDonald, this powerful production also features Jay Doolittle, Matthew Patrick, Collin Smith, Shadae Smith, Brian Veith, Jessica Shearer Wilson, Bryan Zoppi and Phil Whittinghill.
The show runs through April 3, playing Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, with a 2pm matinee on Saturday, April 3. Tickets are $15 (adults) and $10 (ages 13 and under) and can be purchased online at www.roxyregionaltheatre.org, by phone at (931) 645-7699, or at the theatre during regular box office hours (9am-2pm, weekdays).
