-A A +A



The Heart of Kentucky Holiday Festival, in Lebanon and Springfield this past weekend, included a New Old-Fashioned Melodrama "Lovely In Danger" produced by Kentucky Classic Theatre.

Featured were Lexington director G.B. Dixon, Stevie Lowery from the Lebanon Enterprise as the heroine, Andy Collie from Mike FM as the hero, Beth Overgaauw from Channel 6 TV as the auntie, Christy Carpenter of Springfield State Bank as the villainess and Lynn Farris of the former Lebanon Community Theatre as the character-changing villain.

"Melodramas are morality plays," according to Dixon, who doubles as the 'pianer' player to bring musical accent to each show.

"Here character is clearly defined: Good is good and bad is bad. Shades are for the window, not for the soul."

Dixon and producer Robin Humphress brought the play, written by Dave Chapelle, to the area to contribute to the activities of the Holiday Festival and Lebanon's Dickens Parade.

After an the overwhelming success of the show, Kentucky Classic Theatre is offering an encore performance tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Angelic Hall at Center Square on Spalding Avenue in Lebanon.

Tickets are $5 and are available at the door on a first-come basis. Returning patrons who show their stub from a previous performance will be admitted for $3. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
