Electric City Playhouse Presents “Camping With Henry and Tom”

Electric City Playhouse (ECP) in Anderson kicks off its 36th year of community theatre with a limited run “Plus” show.

For its first production of 2020, ECP is returning to the 1920s with Mark St. Germain’s “Camping With Henry and Tom”. In a case of
“Truth is stranger than fiction”, the show is inspired by actual camping trips taken by Thomas Alva Edison, Henry Ford, and President Warren G. Harding.

With humor and a clever balance of political and social commentary, writer Mark St. Germain has imagined the trio’s conversations against the setting of a 1921 camping trip. What is intended to be a respite from media attention is soon beset by a series of interpersonal dramas, causing the men to realize that they may be able to leave society behind, but powerful agendas never take a vacation.

The show is directed by Jennifer Ouellette and features Edwin C. Divine, Jonathan Houston, Stephen Moses, and Maurice Reed.

Performances are at 7:30pm on Friday, January 10 and Saturday, January 11, and at 3pm on Sunday, January 12, 2020. “Camping With Henry and Tom” contains some adult language and reflects social beliefs common to the 1920s.This show is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company. Tickets are $10 each and are available at https://ecplayhouse.com or by calling 864.224.4248..
