This prsoduction will by directed by Micah Goodding, adjunct theatre instructor. He previously attended KC as a theatre student.
“All memories are really reconstructive,” Goodding said. “We remember things how we tell them how they happened.”
“Fuddy Meers” will be his first production to direct at KC.
“For me, Kilgore is a really special place,” Goodding said. “I think there’s magic that happens in Van Cliburn Auditorium. I truly believe that good things happen here. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be.”
The production includes comical language, adult themes, violence and drug use. Parental discretion is advised.
Admission price is $6 for adults, $5 for students and $4 for students who present their KC ID.
