MSU Theatre and Dance's "Picnic"

The play takes place on Labor day Weekend in the joint backyards of two middle-aged widows. The one house belongs to Flo Owens, who lives there with her two maturing daughters, Madge and Millie, and a boarder who is a spinster school teacher. The other house belongs to Helen Potts, who lives with her elderly and invalid mother. Into this female atmosphere comes a young man named Hal Carter, whose animal vitality seriously upsets the entire group. Hal is a most interesting character, a child of parents who ignored him, self-conscious of his failings and his position behind the eight ball. Come observe how these characters unfold in this thrilling character piece!

The show will run Feb 20-21, 24-28, March 2-3 with a 7:30 PM curtain; Feb 23 and March 1 with a 2:30 PM curtain.
