“Sidna Allen’s Dream,” the third play in the series about the Carroll County Courthouse tragedy by playwright Frank Levering, has become a reality, and will be presented four weekends in April 2016 at the historic courthouse.
Originally, the play was to be an extended version of “To Catch the Allens,” but Levering has now penned a new play which while incorporating some elements of that play as well as “Thunder in the Hills,” is a stand-alone drama that audiences will enjoy whether or not they have seen the first two.
Performances are scheduled Friday, April 1, 8, 15, and 22 at 7 p.m.; Saturday April 2, 9, 16, and 23 at 7 p.m.; and Sunday April 3, 10, 17, 24 at 2 p.m. –all in the historic Carroll County Courthouse.
Ticket sales will begin at 9 a.m. on Monday, February 29 at the Carroll County Historical Museum on Main Street, Hillsville or by telephone at 276-728-4113 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Cost of each ticket is $20 with a portion of ticket sales going to the J. Sidna Allen House Restoration fund.
