Lees-McRae Homecoming

OCTOBER 9–10, 2020

Join your fellow Bobcats for a weekend celebrating the mountains we call home. From familiar faces to new friends, we’re coming together to honor the past, rejoice in the present, and dream about the future. 

Unfortunately we can't be together this year, but that won't stop us from celebrating the school we love. Join us for a variety of virtual events throughout the weekend!

About the Show
If you had the chance to go back and change the one decision that completely changed your world, would you do it? Clay and Bria are both concerned about making changes in this world, but they have very different opinions on how to do it. Against the backdrop of the stories of three revolutionary individuals from 50 years ago, Jennifer Clements' play explores the role of chance and choice in our daily lives and how we never know where those choices may lead us.
