Piedmont hushes audience
College theater troupe interview America on stage
The Piedmont College cast of ‘Hush’ includes Kallie Robinson, Zack Turner, Brecken Watts, Terrance Ogden, Jacob Passmore, Jacob McKee, Tatiana Burkett, Brittany Sharer, Matthew Lewis, Brandon Deen, Kayla Buice, Charles Bedell, Katie Malloy, Melanie Cassiday, Michael Cox and Ryan Robinson.

A lion lurks across the countryside, a reporter jumps out of the TV screen, FBI agents appear from the microwave; and they are all looking for the same thing: Maggie.

An 11-year-old girl from Hush, Kan., Maggie Parks has a vivid imagination. She dances with angels and talks with lions. But, when a television reporter believes Maggie really can see angels, she and her father are thrust into a media spotlight that threatens to destroy them both. Can fantasy live in the era of the 24-hour news cycle?

“Hush: An Interview with America” is a thought-provoking look at the modern media through a child’s eyes. It is a show where imaginations collide, dreams become reality, and every moment draws you further into the small-town world of Hush.

Written in 1998 by three-time Pulitzer Prize nominee, James Still, “Hush” is a humorous and heartfelt play for young and mature audiences alike. It is appropriate and exciting for all ages.

Presented in the Swanson Center Blackbox Theater in Demorest, performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 20-22; and 2 p.m. Nov. 23.

Tickets are $5. Piedmont College students, faculty and staff are admitted free.
