Brewton area residents will be able to take a look at life in Magnolia Springs Monday as the Brewton Arts Council presents its next production.
An adaptation of Alabama native Fannie Flagg’s best-selling novel, Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man, will be presented under the title of All the Way from Magnolia Springs beginning at 7 p.m. The presentation will be held at the Woodfin-Patterson Auditorium on the campus of Jefferson Davis Community College.
The show opens in the summer of 1958, as snaggle-toothed Daisy Fay Harper is packing for her trip to the Miss Mississippi Pageant in Tupelo. The show’s main character goes on an astonishing journey through her formative years in rural Mississippi where she rises from an awkward tomboy to a star at the local community theatre and an aspiring Miss America. Along the way, she does a lot of growing up, emerging as one of the most hilarious, appealing and prized characters in modern fiction.
The show is produced on tour by the Springer Theatre, the official State Theatre of Georgia, located in Columbus.
Amber Quick will star as Daisy Fay in the Brewton Arts Council presentation. Her resume includes theatrical performances on stage as Hannah in the Spitfire Grill; Sheila in A Chorus Line and Spirit McCoy in the Hatfields and McCoys. She attended Birmingham-Southern College and is a native of Birmingham.
Tickets for Monday’s presentation will be available at the door for $15. The show is also included in the series for season ticket holders.
