Catch “Remembering Harvey” at the PAC

The Lee College Players will present “Remembering Harvey,” a collection of remembrances of the hurricane that brought massive flooding to the region a year ago.

Theater instructor Kim Martin described the play as “a challenging and provocative look back at the events which rocked the world of our region and community one year ago. In this originally conceived presentation, we will invite the community to look back at Hurricane Harvey, relying on our artistic resources to remember and reevaluate the experience that has left many of our community’s citizens touched for life.”

Lee College also performed this original production at the Fort Worth Fringe Festival, Sept. 7, 8, and 9, a play festival presented by Texas Nonprofit Theatres.

Local performances will be at two locations:

  • 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Sept. 21-22, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 23, at the Lee College Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $8 for students and Lee College faculty and staff members. They may be purchased at the box office. Call 281.425.6255 or visit www.lee.edu/pac.
