NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - Theatre Westminster presented The Book of Days in February. The cast and crew were made up of nearly 30 students.
The story takes place within the quaint backdrop of Dublin, Missouri. Ruth Hoch attempts to find truth and meaning from the murder of the towns patriarch, Walt Bates. Through her journey, she encounters the small town politics, jealousies, greed and lies in her search. As she questions the characters, the reality of the situation slowly becomes apparent, but Ruth wonders, will the truth ever be found.
The next production is Stop Kiss April 11-13 at 7:30 p.m. and April 14 at 2:30 p.m. in Beeghly Theatre. Stop Kiss is a warm and often funny play about two women, Sara and Callie, who meet, become friends, and eventually fall in love. Their new world is turned upside down when they become the victims of a hate crime.
