LABELLE, FL. -- On Friday, December 5, 2014, at 7:00 p.m., the Firehouse Community Theatre proudly presents The Diary of Adam and Eve written by Mark Twain and adapted for the stage by Mark Bucci.

This production is directed by Maureen “Moe” Doucette and is not part of the regular Firehouse season. Tickets are $5.00, available at the door on the night of the performance.

The cast originally presented this one-act play on November 8th as part of the Community Theatre Competition at the Florida Theatre Conference Festival in Gainesville. This was an exciting opportunity for our LaBelle actors to be critiqued by theatre professionals.

The Diaryof Adam and Eve depicts the first battle of the sexes! Adam doesn't get a chance to name any of the new wonders of creation because Eve always beats him to it. When asked why she names a bird a Dodo, her reply, as always, is "Because it looks like a Dodo." However, upon accepting the apple from the seductive snake, Eve and Adam get a new look at life, and the audience will get an enchanting new look at them. You don’t want to miss the opportunity to see this charming show starring Ashley Corbitt-Grover, Matt Kindermann and Meaghan Johnson.

Kylie Bancroft serves as stage manager for the production.

The Firehouse Community Theatre is located at 241 North Bridge Street in historic downtown LaBelle; three blocks north from the intersection of SR80 and SR29 and just 28 minutes from exit 141 on I-75.
