Driving Miss Daisy

Don’t miss your final weekend to see The Towne Players of Garner’s production of the award-winning classic Driving Miss Daisy, in four shows set for Jan. 26-28.

Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize, Driving Miss Daisy is a funny, heartwarming portrayal of an unlikely friendship between a cantankerous Southern white woman and the proud, gentle black man who works as her driver. The play is by Alfred Uhry.

Reprising their roles in a previous Towne Players’ production of the play in 1999 are cast members Holmes Morrison, Frances Stanley and Tim Upchurch. Director of the award-winning community theater troupe is Beth Honeycutt.

The shows will take the stage at the Garner Performing Arts Center on Jan. 26, 27 and 28 at 8 p.m., with a matinee performance on Jan. 28 at 2 p.m. The center is located at 742 W. Garner Road, in downtown Garner.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and senior citizens, and are available at the door.

Towne Players’ season tickets, including upcoming shows Father of the Bride, Willy Wonka Jr., and Arsenic and Old Lace, are $35 for adults and $25 for students and seniors.
