Supporters of the Renner Theatre had the chance to watch an unlikely bond form right before their eyes on Sunday at the matinee showing of Driving Miss Daisy.

The American classic is about an aging Jewish woman and her African American cheuffer. The two form a close relationship that the director says you’ll have to watch to understand.

" It’s an emotional journey. It goes along and it goes along with a lot of fun and a lot of good lines, the lines are great. There are all kinds of smart remarks sharp commentary back in forth and then there’s a little twist close to the end," said Director, Bruce Revennaugh.

Revennaugh says along with a good script, the actors are well versed in theatre and spent more than a month perfecting their roles. He says the actors have more than 125 years of experience between the three of them.

"We spent hours literally discussing the impact of a particular set of lines, maybe three of four lines and that’s how we created the repore between the characters," said Revennaugh.

The play will run again next weekend on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For ticket prices and show times you can visit the Renner Theatre online or give them a call by phone.
