‘Buried Child’ opens tonight

 The 2010-2011 VSU theatre season opens tonight with Sam Shepard’s 1979 Pulitzer Prize winning ‘Buried Child’ directed by Dr. Jimmy Bickerstaff.
 ‘Buried Child’ is about the struggle and mystery of a Midwestern family with a dark secret – years ago, Halie committed incest with her son, Tilden.  The family never recovered from this, and now the secret is working its way into the open.

 “No matter how dark and difficult our pasts are, there is always hope for redemption – and the process to redemption has to do with coming to terms with our past in a variety of ways,” Dr. Bickerstaff said.�
 Dr. Bickerstaff has been working with the cast less than a month, but he and the cast members have learned about both their craft and themselves.
 “Holding on to something that means something to you is definitely an intricate human characteristic,” Elizabeth Powell, cast member, said.  “We all have that innate quality within us. That’s something that anyone can relate to.”
 All shows start at 7:30 p.m.in the Lab Theatre, except Sunday’s matinee show, which starts at 3 p.m. ‘Buried Child’ runs through Sept. 22.
 Students with a VSU ID can reserve tickets through the box office for $5, which is refunded when the student picks up the ticket at the show.�
 For more information, call (229) 333-5973.
 Cast: Colby Hall, Elizabeth Powell, John Holladay, Issac Huntington, Jessalin Smith, Tim Olivar and Clark Franzman.
