Hill College Players will present Messiah on the Frigidaire by John Culbertson Thursday, and Friday, April 26-27, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, April 28, at 2:30 p.m. at the Hill College Vara Martin Daniel Performing Arts Center on the Hill County Campus. 

The small town of Elroy, S.C. is thrust into the evangelical spotlight when what seems to be the image of Jesus appears on a refrigerator in a trailer park. The discovery sets into motion a frenzy of conflict, communion and good old fashioned commerce. When the national investigator turns the appearance into front-page headlines, the trailer park become a Mecca for miracle seekers, soul searchers and disciples with a decidedly political agenda. In a region where religion is as much a part of life as grits and cotton fields, God surely moves in mysterious ways. The show contains mature themes and language and may not be suitable for all ages.

The cast of Messiah on the Frigidaire will include:

Lou Ann Hightower – Mykayla Williams

Dwayne Hightower – Shannon Maddox

Betsy Gridley – Hawa Zackey

Reverend Hodges – Jared Clark

Larry Williamson – Raymond Dolifka

Woman – Jenny Corder

Boy – Emerson O’Toole

Stranger – Kyle Byington 

Box office and auditorium will open 30 minutes before the show begins. Admission is $5 per person and free for Hill College students, faculty, and staff with College ID.
