HPU Theatre Presents 'Early One Evening At The Rainbow Bar And Grille'

Posted on March 2, 2009.

HIGH POINT, N.C., March 2, 2009 – Audience members got a taste of offbeat comedy thanks to High Point University’s production of “Early One Evening at the Rainbow Bar and Grille,” which ran Feb. 26-March 1 in the Empty Space Theatre of the Old Student Center.

Directed by Ed Simpson, professor of theatre and chair of the Department of Performing Arts, the production took place in a tiny, forgotten town in western Pennsylvania where six ordinary folks faced themselves, each other and the terrifying certainty of an early and unjust end.

The play, written by Bruce Graham – award-winning playwright who attended opening night of the production – featured Nathan Ruffin, a sophomore; Alex Mathis, a sophomore; Tony Starner, a senior; Courtney Bedgood, a freshman; Ben Brown, a sophomore; Maggie Jo Saylor, a freshman; and Luke Mullinax, a junior.
