Benefit performance of ‘The Boys in Autumn’


     The winner of the 2013 Mississippi Theatre Association’s Annual State Community Theatre Play Festival will be staged by The Company of Angels on Sunday, March 3 at 2 p.m. at the Temple Theatre. This benefit performance will offset expenses as the production will now advance to Louisville, Ky., on March 7 to represent Mississippi in the Southeastern Theatre Conference’s Community Theatre Festival.  

    The SETC Festival has winners from 10 southeastern states. If  The Angels Company wins the SETC Festival, they will advance to the American Association of Community Theatres National Festival in Indianapolis, Ind.

       “The Boys in Autumn” by Bernard Sabbath tells a story about what would happen if two well known characters from literature, who were best friends as teenagers, were to meet after not seeing each other for over forty years. The play is a commentary and how lives change and old memories and friendships can be  rekindled.  

    The Company of Angels Production features Earl Aycock and Steve Nabors as the two long lost friends.  Both received acting awards at the festival. Earl was selected to the Festival All-Star Cast, and Steve won the award for the Best Actor in the festival.  

    Earl is the principal owner of the Insurance Center of Meridian and has worked in numerous plays in college and at the Meridian Little Theatre. Steve, who is from the state of Washington, is the theater director at Meridian Community College. He has taught and directed theater at several universities and has both professional theater and film experience. He recently completed the role of the minister in James Franco’s film, As I Lay Dying, based on the work of William Faulkner.

       The play is directed by Ronnie Miller who is a retired theater teacher at Meridian Community College. The production team includes professional actor Elliott Street as producer, Joe White and Judie Miller on sound, and Chris Webster and Joey Webster as stage crew.

       For tickets, call the Temple Box Office at 601-693-5353.
