Ponca Playhouse takes on a serious performance

Ponca City Now - January 21, 2014 1:07 pm

Ponca Playhouse, 301 South 1st.

It’s described as an unusual play.

Diviners hit the stage last weekend at the Ponca Playhouse.

You have another chance to catch the performance this weekend.

Larry King an actor in the Diviners said it’s a well done play.

“I have had friends come from Enid, different theaters," King said. "They said they didn’t know anything about it, but they really enjoyed it and it was an emotional stirring show. One guy even left kind of crying.”

The actors hit the stage again Friday and Saturday night at 8, with a Sunday matinee at 2.

The play tells the story of a boy who almost drown.

King said the boy has the ability to find water wells.

“He also predicts rain when the skies are all cleared and he goes through life like this," King said. "He never talks quite right. He doesn’t wear shoes. He won’t take a bath because of the drowning experience and the changes that happen to him from a former preacher who comes into the town.”

King said it does have some humor.

The next performance at the Playhouse is Boeing-Boeing in March.

King said this play is a more lighthearted and humorous.
