On July 2nd we had the pleasure of meeting Theodore Morocco (Rocky) Coleman, the grandson of Miss Daisy’s (Lena Fox) driver (Will Coleman). He spent nearly 2 hours telling us about his grandfather, Lena Fox (Miss Daisy), Mr. Uhry (Boolie), and Alfred Uhry (the playwright and Boolie’s grandson). What an amazing treat!
Only two weeks until showtime! Costumes are on and the play just keeps getting more and more beautiful as it comes together.
