The admission fee is $5 by cash and checks only. Students that bring their Vol State ID get in for free.
The play that will be presented in the style of an old-fashioned melodrama and will take place in Wemyss Auditorium in Noble C. Caudill Hall.
“Dirty Work at the Crossroads” is a tear-jerking play about Nellie Lovelace, an innocent country girl. Munro, the viper, is married to the belle of New Haven Music Halls, but it does not prevent him from pursuing Nellie and taking her away from the arms of her dying mother, whom he poisoned.
It also does not prevent him from driving Adam Oakhart, the blacksmith’s son to drink, or blackmailing rich Mrs.Asterbilt, or bewitching her daughter, Leonie.
Make sure to stop by, and support Vol State student work.
