CAMPING WITH HENRY AND TOM Concludes 2011-12 Season At Pull-Tight

May 18
10:55 AM 2012


Tickets go on sale Monday, May 21 for Pull-Tight Players' Camping With Henry and Tom, the company's final production of the 2011-12 season at the Franklin theater.

Camping With Henry and Tom-directed by Lynda Gibbs-focuses on a 1921 camping trip that Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and President Warren G. Harding took into the Maryland woods to escape civilization. Inspired by that actual event, Camping with Henry and Tom is an exploration of friendship, politics and leadership; a comedic and dramatic clash of three great historical figures, and what might have happened when they ventured off into the woods together.

Performance dates at the Pull-Tight Theatre (112 2nd Avenue South in Franklin) are June 1, 2, 7-10, 15 and 16. Performance times are 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, with 2:30 p.m. matinees on Sunday. Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 seniors (60+) and $12 for students. Call (615) 791-5007 or purchase tickets online at
