NANCY HANKS, BONDWOMAN at BOSTIC LINCOLN SPRING FESTIVAL
RCT ANNOUNCES ITS CAST - PERFORMANCE SAT, 4/20, 4:00 P.M. - See Photo Album
Rutherford Community Theatre and its Artistic Director, Les Beale, announce its cast for its upcoming performance of “Nancy Hanks, Bondwoman” at the Bostic Lincoln Spring Festival on Saturday, April 20th. This one-act drama is edited from the collection published in 1939 entitled “American Folk Plays” by Professor Frederick H. Koch, and is being produced by special request and arrangement with the Bostic Lincoln Center museum in Bostic, North Carolina.
Set in 1808, the play is based on the local historical claim that Abraham Lincoln was, indeed, born in North Carolina, conceived by the love shared between Nancy Hanks and Abraham Enloe. Nancy, a servant girl raised by the Enloe family, is played by Becky Humphries. Humphries has appeared in several RCT productions, including “The Ballad of Nancy Hanks,” written by local playwright, Ludy Wilkie, and “Ghost for Rent,” written by Le Roma Greth.
Nancy’s fiery clashes with her mistress, Mrs. Sarah Enloe, leads to a fateful decision. Sarah Enloe is played by Laura Thomas, a veteran RCT actress with over 15 years’ experience on stage and back stage, who lends her considerable skills to this challenging role.
Lemmer, another servant in the Enloe household, is Mrs. Enloe’s staunchest supporter. This character is played by Christy Ayers, who is returning to the RCT stage in this role. Ayers last performed in “A Hillbilly Christmas Carol,” written by LeRoma Eshbach Greth.
Abraham Enloe is a man caught between duty and desire. He has the unenviable task of trying to do what’s best and right for the two women in his life. Playing this demanding role is Richard Brown. Brown, no stranger to RCT’s stage, has appeared in numerous productions, the most recent being in “Hot Dames, Hot Lead,” written by Jim Gustafson.
Tom Lincoln, played by Jamie Earls, is one of several less than desirable solutions to the thorny problem besetting the Enloe household. Earls, a seasoned RCT actor, brings a wealth of experience to this role. He last appeared in RCT’s production “Hot Dames, Hot Lead,” written by Jim Gustafson.
“Nancy Hanks, Bondwoman” is part of the all-day Bostic Lincoln Spring Festival on Saturday, April 20th, in Bostic, North Carolina. The play is free to the public and will be performed at 4:00 p.m. on Bostic’s newly constructed outdoor stage by the tennis courts. For more information regarding this and other special events, please call 828-245-9800 .
Come on out and enjoy a piece of our own local history.

Hot Dames, Hot Lead,” written by Jim Gustafson, and produced by Rutherford Community Theatre’s Artistic Director, Les Beale, with Assistant Director & Stage Manager, Laura Thomas, is a delightfully fun, quality 3-act play, is set in New Orleans, Louisiana, and features a 1930's Live Radio Show complete with a cast and crew of twenty-one actors and technicians, live sound effects, vintage costumes and dialogue, and singing commercials.
Senator Bullfrog Bodiene's (Jamie Earls) pet project, the Bodiene Dam in Sunshine Valley, looks like it's going to be a reality. Lola (Angelina Giamcoparo Spencer), his right hand gal, thinks otherwise as things just are not adding up. She hires Catfish King (Brad Davis), a private investigator, to confirm her suspicions. Big Bill Mullin (Bud Tanner), Bodiene's Chief of Staff, continues to buy up land in Sunshine Valley along with his not-so-upstanding colleagues from the underworld.
Clyde Keller, as the Announcer, narrates the story and introduces the singing commercials featuring Shelby Carter, Bonnie Davis, Diane Hannon, Nicole Shaffer (who also acts various female voices), and Sarah Quinton,. Supporting cast in order of appearance are David Robertson as kingpin Raccoon Montgomery, Richard Brown as geologist Professor Nobodski; informants Leroy and Jimmy the Shine Box, the German Ambassador and various male voices; Victoria Ekelund as realtor Sadie Deal; Will Wilson as Big Tuna; Michael Johnston as Kid and Messenger Boy; Bonnie Davis as bar-owner Crashin’ Annie Burns; Jamie Oxley as Sunshine Valley Mayor; and Sound Effects by James Whisnant. Music by Will Wilson, keyboard, and Becky Humphries, clarinet.
Come join us on Friday, April 5th, & Friday, April 6th, for RCT’s exciting two-night performance of "Hot Dames; Hot Lead," produced by special arrangement with Heuer Publishing Company LLC in association with Brooklyn Publishers, LLC.

THE NATIONAL DAY OF SERVICE
To give back to the Community."
Across the United States, today, many Americans volunteered their services in honor of the National Day of Service. Normally held on the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday, the National Day of Service gives people an opportunity to honor the civil rights leader and to give back to their neighborhood by volunteering for service projects in their community.
Today, volunteers under the leadership of former RCT President, Assistant Director, and veteran actress, Laura Thomas, honored RCT in sorting through and organizing props and materials and stage property in our new home located on 143 Central Street, Rutherfordton, NC. This dedicated team made a lot of progress. In one short day the building has been cleared, props and materials have been sorted and loaded for the dump, entry access has been established, and necessary repairs were noted to be completed next week.
Volunteers helping Laura Thomas on various major projects were:
Bonnie Davis, Actress/Singer/Tech Crew
Brad Davis, Actor/Musician/Tech Crew

MSN announces a “Day of Service, a chance to give back to the community,” written 2 days ago by TJ Martinell of MSN News. “Obama plans to honor Martin Luther King throughout his inaugural weekend, beginning by asking Americans to volunteer in their communities on Saturday to honor the civil right leader's legacy of service.” (From MSN article, January 20, 2013: “Inauguration Day marks rare intersection with King” http://news.msn.com/politics/inauguration-day-marks-rare-intersection-with-king
“Building a ramp for a disabled veteran and organizing a warehouse full of clothes for foster children are among the many service projects available to people looking to volunteer Saturday as a part of the National Day of Service to give people a chance to volunteer with groups in their neighborhood and give back to their community. Normally held on the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday, the National Day of Service is an opportunity for people to honor the civil rights leader by volunteering for service projects in their community. Many projects have been planned in all 50 states, according to the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency that promotes service efforts."

FOR “A HILLBILLY CHRISTMAS CAROL!”
by LeRoma Eshbach Greth
(See photo album.)
DON’T MISS ITS FINAL PERFORMANCE
AT GREEN RIVER PLANTATION’S
CHRISTMAS DINNER THEATER
DECEMBER 14TH & 15TH!
Rutherford Community Theatre and Artistic Director, Les Beale, thank Bostic Lincoln Center and Lydia Clontz, BLC President and Museum Executive Director, for giving us an opportunity to produce “A Hillbilly Christmas Carol,” by LeRoma Eshbach Greth, in support the museum’s efforts in preserving our county’s history at their Open House event, “A Bostic Christmas.”
Thank you, also, to our wonderful audiences who attended the show and shared with us their enthusiastic reviews and positive comments. Lydia Clontz tells RCT she is still telling receiving praises about this charming Christmas play. With an initial turnout of more than 80 people at the 3:00 p.m. showing, it was standing room only! When BLC asked RCT to add a second performance after Santa’s Visit, RCT was thrilled. The second performance was well-received and several commented it was “even better than the first.”
If you missed the Bostic performance of “A Hillbilly Christmas Carol,” by LeRoma Eshbach Greth, be sure to take this opportunity to see this whimsical play at Green River Plantation’s Christmas Dinner Theater in the Gate House on Friday, December 14th, and Saturday, December 15th. This play is a delightful Christmas comedy in one act set in the Ozarks, produced by Les Beale, RCT Artistic Director, by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.
It is a heart-warming story of a mountain family’s Christmas saga dealing with their own prickly “Uncle Scrooge,” Joshua Frunheiser, played by RCT’s Vice-President and veteran actor Jamie Earls. The Widow Hinkly, played by seasoned actress and Assistant Director, Laura Thomas, has set her sights on Joshua who’s none too interested in what she’s got planned for him. Mrs. Thomas graciously stepped in to play this role cast for Victoria Ekelund, RCT President and actress, who unfortunately fell victim to the flu season. Thank you, Laura. You are a trouper! Best wishes Victoria, for a speedy recovery and return to the RCT stage.
The Widow’s children, Hiram Hinkly, played by long-time actor Richard Brown, and Cora Belle Hinkly, played by Christy Ayers, RCT Secretary and rising actress on RCT’s stage, are less than enthusiastic about their Ma’s ambitions. To complicate matters, Joshua’s nieces, Lizzie Ann and Minnie Su, played by twin sisters, Rebecca Quinton and Sarah Quinton respectively, and nephew, Ossie, played by Michael Johnston, show up unexpectedly at Uncle Joshua’s cabin. Together, the Hinkly siblings and Uncle Joshua’s young relatives cook up a special Christmas ‘present’ to ‘set him right.’ All three talented young actors have appeared in several RCT productions this year, as well as on stage last month at the ICC Foundation in Rutherford Arts Council’s production, “Olympus”.
Come join us and find out what surprises are in store for everyone. The results are hilariously entertaining! Dinner at Green River Plantation’s Christmas Dinner Theater for both performances will be at 6:30 p.m., followed by the show at 7:00 p.m. The cost is $25.00 per person for both dinner and show. Reservations are required.
But, hurry! Seating is limited, and the dining room is already filling up fast! CALL TODAY at (828) 286-1461 to reserve your seat at the performance. Looking forward to seeing you there. Happy Holidays!

Ayers, who recently appeared in “Ghost For Rent”, currently serves as the Board’s Secretary.
Joshua Frunheiser, who has already rebuffed The Widow Hinkly’s attempt to bring him some Christmas cheer, is dismayed to learn that he has been saddled with his sister’s three young children for the holidays.

The Quinton sisters return to RCT’s stage fresh from their appearance in “Ghost For Rent.” Joshua’s nephew, Ossie, is played by Michael Johnston who debuted with RCT in “Ghost For Rent.” All three will be appearing in the Arts Council’s upcoming production of “Olympus” in November 2012.
