Broadway Actress To Appear In "Driving Miss Daisy", To Benefit Green Street Arts Center
The Vintage Players of Middletown will be presenting the play "Driving Miss Daisy" with Carolyn Kirsch in the title role, as a benefit for The Green Street Arts Center.
Performance dates are April 27th (7 pm), April 28th (7 pm) and April 29th (2pm).
Miss Kirsch is a veteran of 15 Broadway shows, over a 21 year period of working in theatre in New York. Her many credits include: The Original Company of"A Chorus Line (Theatre World Award), "Chicago" (for Bob Fosse), and "CoCo" (which starred Katharine Hepburn).
"Driving Miss Daisy" chronicles the relationship of an older, southern Jewish woman and her patient, proud African-American chauffeur over a 20 year time period. The Pulitzer Prize winning play (1988) by Alfred Uhry presents a poignant, humorous,
and thought provoking look at the issues of racial biases ... and the challenges of aging gracefully. After each performance a discussion will be held regarding the issues of aging, as both obstacles and rewards are encountered as we drive along on our individual roads of life.
The cast is rounded out by the excellent talents of Richard Nelson as the chauffeur, and Nat Holmes as Daisy's son (both of Middletown).
Reservations are required and may be made by calling Claudia Foerstel at (860) 685-7797, or contacting her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Suggested donation is $10 and all money collected will go to The Green Arts Center in
order to continue enriching the lives of our children.
