Group of six players in Craig ready to try performance based on "The Lucy Show"
Leann Dixon remembers growing up in South Carolina, the oldest of 11 children, putting on plays for her family in impressively makeshift surroundings. “We’d have all my family come and fill the living room,” she said. “And we’d even put a curtain up between the living room and the dining room.” Dixon and her family would also sew costumes, pushing the plays to a level of realism that doesn’t usually take shape in family performances. Now Dixon, who lives in Craig, is pouring some of that creativity into a tiny production called “A Comedy for Charity.” It’s based on the 1960s television program “The Lucy Show,” starring Lucille Ball, and it’s playing at 7 p.m. this Thursday through Saturday at East Elementary School.
