Join us for Barefoot and Barbecue on Tate Lawn July 13 from 4-7 p.m.

Lees-McRae College invites alumni and friends to join us on Tate Lawn for Barefoot and BBQ Friday, July 13 from 4-7 p.m. Kick off your shoes and dance to the music from the Nightlife Band and enjoy a barbecue dinner with all the fixins!

The barbecue dinner is $10 for adults and $6 for children ages 6-9. Children under 5 are free. Enjoying the music on Tate Lawn is free.

R.S.V.P. to Michelle Vance Scott '86/'90 at or call 828-898-2489 by July 9. You can pay over the phone or at the event.

Stick around after the Nightlife Band finishes up for opening night of See How They Run, Lees-McRae Summer Theatre's side-splitting comedy that runs through July 20.

This comedy is sure to delight audiences. Director Janet Speer says, "It's the funniest play I've ever directed!"

This fast paced farce centers on a young vicar's wife who is trying to fit into a small tightly knit town. Set in the background of the Cold War, things go awry when a pompous church matron comes calling unannounced and a male friend of the young vicar's wife's past comes to visit.

The story moves into light but misinterpreted scandal, mistaken identities, the mugging of the good vicar, and the church matron's introduction to heavy drinking (which she has never done before). Throw in another vicar and a witty maid who is a little off and you have a comedy that will make even the grumpiest smile.
