Maggie the Cat will heat up the cold evenings in Highlands as the Highlands-Cashiers Players set the stage for “Cat on A Hot Tin Roof” slated for February 23rd through 26th and March 2nd – 4th at the Martin-Lipscomb Performing Arts Center. The winner of the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this play is one of the finest examples of southern genre theatre. The finely drawn characters and compelling dialoge has made the play a theatre lovers favorite even a half century after it’s debut.
We all remember the movie version featuring Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman and Burl Ives and embrace the genius of iconic playwright Tennessee Williams. The play is thought provoking as it tackles the difficulty of family communication and the way we deal with those closest to us.
The play is sponsored in part by local radio station WHLC with evening performances at 7:30 pm and Sunday Matinees at 2:30 pm. The Martin-Lipscomb Performing Arts Center is located at 507 Chestnut Street in Highlands. For ticket information call 828.526.8084 or visit their website at www.highlandscashiersplayers.org.
