"Echoes from the South" from the Clayton State Theatre, Starting Apr. 13

The Clayton State Theatre is presenting two student-written productions this spring. "Echoes from the South" will open with a preview on Wednesday, Apr. 13, with opening night on Thursday, Apr. 14 and subsequent performances on Apr. 15, Apr. 16, Apr. 22 and Apr. 23

The two productions are "The Witch’s Fee" by Levi Jelks, III, and "Great Grandmama’s Silver" by Adrienne Garcia. All shows start at 8 p.m. The house opens at 7:45 p.m. Admission is $5, Clayton State students are free with their Laker Card ID. Both productions are directed by Clayton State Assistant Professor of Theatre and Communication Shontelle Thrash.

In "The Witch's Fee” young “Dead-End” Charlie Mallory is a poor Louisiana boy who is out of luck and out of options. His misfortunes lead him into the boathouse of Miss Ophelia, the infamous bayou woman who is able to give Charlie everything that he wants; fame, wealth, power… but only if he is willing to give her a deadly payment.

Desperate, Charlie agrees and soon realizes that both the boathouse and Miss Ophelia are more dangerous than they appear and hold secrets that will eventually tie both of their fates together. Now that Charlie has everything that he wants, can he skip out on payment and keep the witch at the door when she comes knocking?

In "Great Grandmama’s Silver" Emma returns home, after a lengthy absence, to attend her mother’s funeral. While there, she is forced to confront her past in the form of three alter egos.

A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
