First Presbyterian Theater'S BEN BUTLER To Open April 18

General Butler is faced with a moral dilemma when escaped slaves request sanctuary at Fort Monroe. Not following the letter of the law will alter the course of U.S. History. Based on actual events in 1861, this play is clever without being glib, meaningful without being pretentious, and side-splittingly funny. It's a timeless exploration of social conscience and individual responsibility.

The cast features: Thom Hofrichter, Tony McCarrol, Robert Phillips, and Kevin Torwelle. Sets are by Rae Surface, costumes by Jeanette Walsh, and stage management by Chad Butterbaugh.

Box Office Wednesday/Thursday/Friday from 11am-2p; and in person, 1-hour prior to curtain call 260-426-7421 ext. 121 for tickets or information. Tickets available online at
