Hendersonville Little Theatre Presents Alfred Uhry’s Driving Miss Daisy

It took Hoke Coleburn and Daisy Wertham 25 years to come to an amicable understanding of one another — what most would call friendship. You are invited to a front seat drive with two of Alfred Uhry’s most memorable characters.

Come for a Ride with Miss Daisy

HLT’s third production of the 2011 season will be the acclaimed Driving Miss Daisy by Alfred Uhry. Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize, the play is a warmhearted, humorous, and affecting tale of the unlikely relationship between an aging, crotchety white Southern lady and a proud, soft-spoken black man. Daisy Wertham is a rich Jewish widow of seventy-two. After she totals her car, her son Boolie insists she have a chauffeur. Boolie hires Hoke Coleburn, an unemployed, thoughtful black man who suspects that Miss Daisy’s patronizing tone reveals her latent prejudice. Through a series of scenes spanning twenty-five years, the play follows their often touching, usually funny and always entertaining ups and downs.

Cast and Crew

Playing Miss Daisy is Frances Adams Oates who has numerous roles to her credit both in musical theater and dramatic productions. She is making her HLT debut with this play. Ronnie Pepper, well known for his participation in productions celebrating Black History month as well as several roles at HLT, plays Hoke. Rounding out the cast is Doug Sparks as Boolie. Doug was last seen at HLT in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Bob Reese is the director. He was last at HLT as the director of The Lion in Winter. Kai Elijah Hamilton is assistant director. Jonathan Forrester and Kelly Morgan are producers, and Renee Styron will be stage manager.

Show Times
and Ticket Sales

Driving Miss Daisy opens July 8th and runs until July 24th. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 PM; Sunday matinees begin at 2:00 PM. The box office is open for telephone reservations.

Come and experience a little Southern (dis)Comfort

at Asheville Community Theatre on the Mainstage

Friday and Saturday, July 15 and 16th at 7:30 p.m.

Written by and starring Elisabeth Gray

Southern (dis)Comfort is a dark comedy about life and
death in the American South, with stops along the way
ranging from Cracker Barrels and nursing homes, to beauty pageants and church gymnasiums. All of the characters in the show are portraits of real life Southerners born and raised in the American South. Theater meets storytelling meets stand-up comedy in this one-of-a-kind evening of entertainment.

Lest you be inclined to think “Southern (dis)Comfort? Been there, done that”, you’ll be happy to know that the show has been revamped with new content and new structure as it prepares to make its way to New York City in the fall.

It’s so new, in fact, that you may not recognize it at all.

So bring a few friends and join us at the theatre!

General seating – all seats $20. Recommended for mature audiences.
