When the 1935 Dust Bowl batters the Texas Panhandle with drought, dirt, and devastation, the Loftin family is hit especially hard. Matriarch Edith already works a night job at the post office to help feed the household of ten, while her husband struggles to run their farm with an injured leg and an oldest son whose behavior grows increasingly erratic. Once the dust storms hit, not only do the Loftins suffer a devastating loss among their own, they also face the loss of their farm. Though Edith is sent reeling, she must find a way to move forward somehow. But where is hope to be found? A moment in American history sets the stage for this personal, immediate drama about finding purpose amid overwhelming disaster.
Personal Program Ads for Students
One Playbill is printed for each cast and crew member otherwise our program is virtual for all shows. We will have QR codes posted outside the Theatre for audience members to scan and view on their phone. The Program Ads will also run on the televisions in the lobby and before the show begins on the main screen. Program Ads are purchased per show. For example, if you want a 1/4 page ad to run in One Act and Musical you need to purchase 2 1/4 page ads. After you have placed items in your cart the following form will allow you to choose the shows you want your ad to run for.
Program ads can be paid via the Cheddar Up link below or by cash or check (payable to Harrison Theatre) . Non-electronic payments should be placed in a sealed envelope with the Students Name and “Personal Program Ads” and placed in the grey lock box in the Black Box Theatre.
