Hollywood comes to Asbury College
WILMORE, KY—On April 20, 21, 26, 27, the Asbury College Theatre and Cinema Performance program will produce the sitcom, “Post Grad.” Lawrenceburg, Ky., native Tim Peach, former writer for “Everybody Loves Raymond” and Asbury College graduate, wrote the production.
Asbury College students, faculty, staff and the community are welcome to be a part of the live studio audience. All performances are at 7:30 p.m. in Doddridge-Holland Theatre. Tickets are $5 and can purchased at the bookstore or through the switchboard by calling 859-858-3511.
Comedian Esther Harvey ’91 will provide entertainment during set changes.
Asbury College students Lee Clements ’10, Mitch Colley ’09, Clay Hassler ’08, Natalie Lawyer ’10, Sarah Matthews ’09 and Angie Yoder ’10 star in the production.
Post Grad is about several young, single, fresh college graduates struggling to make tough decisions and make it in the working world.
“That first job experience is different for everyone,” said Peach. “Some people land a great job even before they’re finished with school. Others are working in a field that’s different than their major and some can’t find work at all. For some, it’s easier to be career students and not deal with the reality of the working world. I pieced together some of my own experiences and other ones that friends have told me over the years. I based most of my characters on friends I had while attending Asbury College.”
Peach graduated in 1997 with a degree in media communications. After college, he worked for the show “Dawson’s Creek.” He then moved to Los Angeles were he landed a job on “The Drew Carey Show” before getting his dream job at “Everybody Loves Raymond.”
