For one night only, Hardin County Playhouse presents an original production, “Telethon: The Drive to Cure World Boredom,” as its fall fundraiser.
But it’s not your average telethon.
To create a production with a talent-show base, playhouse director Bo Cecil came up with the idea of a telethon-centered show.
He took it to the HCP board, which told him to run with it. Cecil pulled in Ron Blair to write the script, which wasn’t written until they picked what acts would be featured in the show.
