Mill Town Players present Hank Williams: Lost Highway
The Mill Town Players will present the musical biography of Hank Williams, Sr., opening this Friday at the Historic Pelzer Auditorium at 214 Lebby Street. Hank Williams: Lost Highway is the story of the legendary singer-songwriter who became one of the great innovators of American popular music. The play follows Williams’ rise from his beginnings on the Louisiana Hayride to his triumphs on the Grand Ole Opry to his eventual self-destruction at twenty-nine. Along the way, we are treated to indelible songs like “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” “Move It on Over” and “Hey, Good Lookin’,” which are given fresh and profound resonance set in the context of Williams’ life.
Hank Williams: Lost Highway is directed by Christopher Rose with musical direction by Joe Wehunt, featuring a cast of 10 local actors and professional musicians, including Mitchell Smith as Hank.
Tickets are only $12, with discounts for seniors, military, and students, and can be purchased online at www.milltownplayers.org, by calling (864)947-8000, or at the door.
