Jackson Theatre Guild presents 'Driving Miss Daisy' play premiering Thursday night
JACKSON, TN (WNBJ) - Tickets are on sale for the Jackson Theatre Guild’s production of Driving Miss Daisy.
The play takes us back to 1948, just before the civil rights movement and details the relationship between Daisy Werthan, a widowed Jewish woman, and her Afro-American chauffeur, Hoke.
Actors are excited about returning back to the stage after a long hiatus due to COVID.
“I think for me as an actor and for probably the other actors we are no different from the general population, it’s just nice to be outside again. I think the whole experience coming to the theatre can be a nice sort of foyer back into social interaction,” said Keith Davis, who plays Hoke in Driving Miss Daisy.
The show will be at the Ned R. McWherter West Tennessee Cultural Arts Center and the tickets are 35 dollars. Masks are required and social distancing will be enforced.
The play premieres Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. There are also showings Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. There will be two matinees on Saturday and Sunday as well.
