Tickets are now on sale for Ashe County Little Theatre’s spring production of The Children’s Hour.A talented cast is working hard to bring the show to the stage. Set in a girl’s boarding school, Mary Tilford (Lane Isaacs) is the angry student who runs away from the school. To avoid returning she tells her grandmother (Joanne Bowman) that the two headmistresses, Karen Wright (Lauren Ohnesorge) and Martha Dobie (Tyler Cloherty), have had an inappropriate relationship. The accusation resonates within the community, leading to the destruction of the women’s lives and careers as the effects of the lie grow. Also impacted by the consequences of the lie are Dr. Joseph Cardin (Brandon Kearley) the fiancé of Karen and the other girls in the school. Listed in the order of their appearance the girls are: Peggy (Kayla Weaver), Catherine (Caitlin Miller), Lois (Meghan Vannoy), Helen (Tiffany Rash), Rosalie (Sarah Wheeler), and Evelyn (Jasa Woods). Rounding out the cast are Aunt Lilly (Jan Gambill), Agatha Miranda (Annette Bednosky) and the grocery boy (Ory Owen).
