The Clayton State University Theatre and the City of Jonesboro are collaborating on the fall production of the Clayton State Theatre.
“Moonshine and Magnolias,” from a script written by Clayton State graduate Kalani Fraser (Fayetteville), under commission from Stately Oaks Plantation, is a remarkable portrayal of the City of Jonesboro that will initially performed by the students of the Clayton State Theater, under the direction of Phillip DePoy. Scheduled show dates are Nov. 10, Nov. 11, Nov. 12, Nov. 17, and Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m. All performances will be held in the Clayton State Theatre, room 132 of the University’s Arts & Sciences Building. General admission is $5, although LakerCard holders are admitted free.
“Moonshine and Magnolias” will take you back as far as the year 1845, telling more than 20 different stories of 90 different characters. The cast of Clayton State Theater students will take on multiple parts, as many as seven each. This city of Jonesboro’s wide spanning, rich history will be showcased, including “The Battle of Jonesboro,” which took place from Aug. 31, 1864 to Sept. 1, 1864. Events that shaped this community will be relived right before the audience’s eyes!
