Blues For Mr. Charlie On Stage at Coker College

Blues for Mr. Charlie is on stage at Coker College directed by Professor Deborah Bloodworth. Deb's masterful direction brings some raw emotion to the Coker stage as the actors reached into themselves to bring this uneasy story of two communities finding a way to understand and live with each other and not really succeeding. James Baldwin is a powerful writer and the actors do a good job of bringing that power to the Elizabeth Boatwright Coker stage.

This is from Jana Longfellow, who works hard promoting the Hartsville area as the outreach person with the Hartsville Chamber of Commerce. Jana is also a Coker alum and there are at least two Coker alumns in the play -- Cody Smith and Jon Shannon. Here is a quick note about the play from Jana:

Our Hartsville Very powerful play- highly recommended. The performers do a masterful job with a very difficult period in our nation's history. The story is compelling and brings the audience along on a journey of raw emotions that is best seen in live theater vs. film. We rely on the arts to entertain us, but sometimes we choose view plays that make us think, make us remember, and make us feel. You will not forget this experience. Mature audiences only.

This play will make for a couple of other blog posts as the work on it has been going on for several months and it is a strong production utilizing a great many of the talents available on the Coker College campus.
