Snow College play, ‘Big Fish’ explores life lessons
EPHRAIM—Is it just another whopper of a fish story, or could it really be true?
That’s the question William Bloom asks when he begins to suspect his dying father might really be some kind of hero, as the Snow College Theater Department presents “Big Fish” Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 23-24, and again Thursday through Saturday of next week, March 2-4.
Will’s father, Edward, is very sick, and as he spends time with his dad, he wonders about all the wild stories his father told him through the years about befriending giants, werewolves, growing goldfishes, witches and more.
Is his dad a liar, or does he just love storytelling? Will is a journalist, and as he starts to investigate his dad’s preposterous stories, he learns what may be the truth. And on the way, he learns truths about himself, his beliefs and how to face life.
Milinda Weeks is the director of this wonderful play of discovery. Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. at the Eccles Center for the Performing Arts.
Tickets are: $9 for adults and $8 for seniors and for students and high school age and younger.
Tickets may be bought at the box office in the Eccles Center or at http://www.snow.edu/theatre.
