George hits The Big Five-Oh
New play about middle age opens at Habersham
0418 Carmen-Jack Five Oh
Jack Molnar portraying George Thomas and Carmen Adams playing his wife get into a heated yet hysterical discussion about their neighbors coming over for dinner.

For a man about to turn 50, George Thomas is not coping well with the barrage of AARP brochures, notices from his lawyer to update his will, and pamphlets from local funeral homes he receives in the mail each day.

The 49-year-old college professor is the focus of a new comedy by Brian Mitchell — “The Big Five-Oh” — which spotlights a middle-age man, his family, eccentric neighbors and one of his students who may or may not have a crush on him.

Directed by Justin Dudkiewicz, “The Big Five-Oh” performed by the Habersham Community Theatre showcases the talents of Jack Molnar as George Thomas, Carmen Adams as Marie Thomas, Ben Cusato as Eric Thomas, Emily Macey Brown as Julie Thomas, Alta Moseley and Ernie Ashworth as the neighbors Kathy and Steve, Jeff Skelton as Douglas and Cassandra Martin as Sara, the college student.

Performances of “The Big Five-Oh” will be at 7:30 p.m. April 19 through April 21 and 2 p.m. April 25 through 28 at the Harbersham Theater, 1370 Washington St., Clarkesville.

Tickets are $13 for adults and $8 for full-time students. Tickets may be purchased by calling 706-839-1315 or visiting
