Rosebud, the Lives of Orson Welles to benefit TLT Scholarship Fund

Published 7:23pm Thursday, May 23, 2013

“This script is quite wonderful, not an easy walk-in-the-park, but a real gem,” director Lavin Cuddihee said. “The author has masterfully woven scenes from some of Orson’s films with bits and pieces from various works of Shakespeare, who was the playwright who guided Welles’ spirit from his earliest years, to personal thoughts that sound like they could have been written by Welles himself.”

“Doing a one-man show has always been a dream, it’s certainly on my bucket list of things to do,” Calure said. “I just never thought I’d pick a script that so accurately portrays the life of a very complicated but loveable character. It’s definitely the biggest role challenge I’ve had in 50 years of community theater. I am honored to be presenting it to benefit the Sue Hipps Memorial Scholarship Fund.”

The play will take place on Saturday, June 1 at 7:30 p.m. and Sun. June 2 at 3 p.m. at Sunnydale on South Trade Street in Tryon (between the IGA and The Dollar General.)

Proceeds from ticket prices go to the scholarship fund. Price includes light hors d’oeuvres and beverage. Tickets can be purchased at TLT Workshop by calling 828-859-2466 or at the Book Shelf in Tryon.
