Cartersville's Pumphouse Players is set to present Bad Seed by Maxwell Anderson, which tells the story of a mother's realization that her young daughter has committed a murder and based on the 1954 novel by William March.
Shows at the Legion Theatre are set for Oct. 25 and 26, and Nov 1 and 2, at 8 p.m., and Oct. 27, at 3 p.m.
Here's more about the play from community theater group, the Pumphouse Players:
The scene is a small southern town where Colonel and Christine Penmark live with their daughter, Rhoda. Little Rhoda Penmark is the evil queen of the story. On the surface she is sweet, charming, full of old-fashioned graces, loved by her parents, admired by all her elders. But Rhoda's mother has an uneasy feeling about her. When one of Rhoda's schoolmates is mysteriously drowned at a picnic, Mrs. Penmark is alarmed. For the boy who was drowned was the one who had won the penmanship medal that Rhoda felt she deserved.
The show is directed by Meghann K. Humphreys and produced by Tony Bowers.
Stars include Christy Gessner, Mallory Holder, Mike Wasson, Ginny Slifcak, David Pendergraft, Tyler Robertson, Corinne Scott, Ron Connell, Karen Stinard and Mark Jamerson.
