Full Moon Over Montmartre

Gardner-Webb University’s School of Performing and Visual Arts will present the theatrical production “Full Moon Over Montmartre” on campus on April 6-9.

Written by Billy Doswell, the play is set entirely in the living room of main characters Sadie and Fred Bailey, in a college town in the present. Just as the Baileys prepare to depart on a lifelong dream trip to Paris, Sadie is diagnosed with the early stages of Alzheimer’s.

The production features director Jim Thomas, who recently retired from Gardner-Webb after serving as dean of the School of Performing and Visual Arts. The cast includes Dianne Chapman as Sadie Bailey and Dr. Earl Leininger, who recently retired as GWU Associate Provost of Arts & Sciences, as Frank Bailey.

With the same director and cast, the show originally debuted in 2001 at the Southern Appalachian Repertory Theatre in Mars Hill, N.C.

Shows in Gardner-Webb’s Millennium Playhouse, located on Falcon Circle behind the Communication Studies Hall, are April 6-8 at 7:30 PM nightly and April 9 at 2:30 PM.

Prices are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and students, and free for GWU students, faculty and staff, as well as children 12 and younger.
