For immediate release
August 9, 1999

The personalities of Cedar Gap that once danced across the pages of the Abilene Reporter-News are coming to life on stage at Abilene Christian University in ACU Theatre's fall dinner theatre production, "Cedar Gap Homecoming."

Cedar Gap was made popular by Abilene Reporter-News columnist Jack Boyd from 1987 to 1992. A script and lyrics by Boyd, ACU professor of emeritus of music, and original music by Ed George, ACU professor of music, merge into a rollicking musical where the Cedar Gap citizens welcome home Cletus, Pearl and others to the Palace Hotel and Café.

"Everyone who read the tales of Cedar Gap in the Abilene Reporter-News needs to make time for this affirming and laughter-filled journey," said director Adam Hester. professor and chair of theatre. "The tales of a master story-teller come to life on a stage."

"Cedar Gap Homecoming" runs Aug. 20-21, 27-28 and Sept. 3-4 at Sewell Theatre on the ACU campus. Dinner tickets cost $20; performance-only tickets cost $8. For tickets, call 674-ARTS Monday through Friday from 1 to 5 p.m.
