MCC Presents The Lone Eagle
(Bradenton, Fla., Feb. 3) - Manatee Community College (MCC) Studio 84 Productions will present guest artist Steve Carroll in "The Lone Eagle" at 8 p.m., Saturday, March 7, in the David V. and Anne S. Studio Theatre, located off 26th Street at 60th Avenue West, MCC Bradenton.
"The Lone Eagle" was a nickname given to Charles Lindbergh by the press after he became the first pilot to fly nonstop from New York to Paris in May of 1927. "Almost everything Lindbergh did, he did alone," says writer/performer Carroll. "Whether it was flying the Atlantic, heading his son's kidnapping investigation or making a stand against World War II, he always seemed to be taking on the world all by himself."
Following a command performance of his play on the 75th anniversary of the famous flight to Paris, Carroll received a letter from Reese Lindbergh, president of the Lindbergh Foundation. She wrote, "I was indeed impressed by your performance, which I found moving and very thoughtful, with a fresh perspective on my father that contained much truth."
The 116-seat Howard Studio Theatre Box Office opens one hour before the performance. Reserved seats are $15 for adults and $10 for Florida students and MCC staff. Tickets go on sale Feb. 27 in the Neel Performing Arts Center Box Office. For more information, call (941) 752-5252. For directions, visit MCC's Web site at mccfl.edu/Maps.
