The Department of Theatre and Dance will present the award winning children’s show MOTHER HICKS by Susan Zeder in the Warren Theater. This is an evocative story, richly realized through all of the resources of theatre including poetry, character and story. The setting includes various locations in and around Ware, Illinois, in the late spring of 1935 during the Great Depression. This play is about three outsiders—a foundling girl known only as Girl; a deaf boy, eloquent in the language of his silence; and an eccentric recluse, Mother Hicks. The tale, told with poetry and sign language, chronicles the journeys of these three to find themselves, and each other, in a troubled time. Directed by Kelly Russell, this family friendly play will delight and educate. Don’t miss it! Show times are July 30th at 10:00a.m. & at 7:00pm. July 31st at 7:00p.m and Aug. 1st at 2:00pm. Tickets are $10 for adults, $6.50 for children, $5 for TAMU-CC students.
