The musical "Floyd Collins" premieres at Nazareth College this week, telling the true story of a dream turned to tragedy. In 1925, Floyd Collins attempted to make a tourist attraction out of a cave in Kentucky but accidentally got trapped inside. He learned to fight for his sanity, and his life, as he received minimal contact with the outside world during his rescue, and a media circus fully blossomed above him. Collins became a national story.
The Nazareth College Theatre and Dance department will present "Floyd Collins" Friday, November 13, through Sunday, November 22, at Studio Theatre A48 at the Nazareth College Arts Center (4245 East Avenue). The Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 p.m., while the Sunday shows are at 2 p.m. General admission is $20, or $19 for senior citizens. Tickets can be purchased at the Box Office at Nazareth by visiting box-office.naz.edu or calling 389-2170.
