'Hank Williams: Lost Highway' ends run at The Point Theater

Announcement

Hank Williams' fans only have one more week to experience to The Point Theatre's "Hank Williams: Lost Highway," a musical biography of Williams' life.

Performances will begin at 8:30 pm on the outdoor stage Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, July 19, 20 and 21. The Point's air-conditioned art gallery will be open one hour prior to show time.

"Those boys really do Hank and his music justice," commented one Hank Williams fan leaving the theatre after a recent performance.

Lorenzo Nichols, Point Theatre artistic director, directs the musical biopic and Brad Shearhart, owner of Music and The Mind, serves as the production's musical director.

The musical offers audiences a glimpse into the offstage life of Hank Williams. The backdrop of songs like "Your Cheatin' Heart," "Hey Good Lookin'" and "I'm so Lonesome I Could Cry" reveal the bright spots and darks days of Williams' life.

"Hank Williams: Lost Highway" spans the early days of Hank's career when Mama Lilly drove the band to all their gigs through Hank's triumphs to his eventual firing from the Grand Ole Opry and the end of his life.

Audiences will also see how Williams' lifelong battle with painkillers and alcohol and his tumultuous marriage to Audrey affected his career and the people around him.

Tickets for "Hank Williams: Lost Highway" are only $15 and can be purchased by calling 830-367-5121, in person at the box office or online at www.hcaf.com.

The Point Theatre is located at 120 Point Theatre Road South in Ingram.
