Hillsboro resident directing Paxton play


Kicking off the summer theatre season at the Paxton Theatre is Mark Twain’s the “Diaries of Adam & Eve.”

Directed by Hillsboro’s Madison Hatfield, the readers-theatre piece is a family-friendly tale of the very beginning.

“The Diaries of Adam and Eve” is a uniquely American theatre piece, funny, beautiful and deeply moving. Author David Birney has crafted a light-hearted look at the world’s first love story through the eyes of America’s greatest humorist, Mark Twain, whose Garden of Eden bursts with wit, laughter and the lyric poignance of the first love and the first loss.

The cast includes theatre regular Mark Holmes, most often seen on the stage at Southern State Community College. Starring beside Holmes is newcomer Meagan Bradley. Her inspired performance makes it impossible to see this is her first time on the stage. Musical accompaniment for the production is from talented pianist Christopher William Jackey. Emma Horrick rounds out the production team as stage manager.

Director Madison Hatfield said, “The show has come together so simply and beautifully in such a short time. I am grateful for such an amazing cast and crew.”
