In theater

The plot's a variation on an old Southern fiction saw: Momma tries to hold the family together in the shadow of a West Virginia coal mine, while her starry-eyed daughter looks for her own way out of the small town. But the cast in Sanford's Temple Theater production of The Sweet By 'N' By is worth the trip to see. Regional legend Quinn Hawkesworth plays Bebe, a coal mine widow who runs the town's general store, while noted ingénue Katherine Rogers is Libby, the impulsive daughter who may yet run off with the circus. Micah Cover, Greg Hohn, Ann Lincoln and Debra Gillingham support in a show with no shortage of storytellers. Call 774-4155 for details. --Byron Woods
