The AU Playhouse Presents "The Denmark Story"  

The Playhouse at Anderson University is proud to present The Denmark Story, by Scott Kirk, September 23-25 at 7:30 pm in AU’s Daniel Recital Hall of the Rainey Fine Arts Center. There will also be an additional matinee show at 3:00 pm on September 25.

Featuring Dr. Deborah McEniry in the lead role, The Denmark Story, tells the story of the life of Dr. Annie Dove Denmark, Anderson University president from 1928-1953. In addition to being the first female college president in South Carolina, Denmark was the longest-serving president in the institution’s history. Denmark was also one of the most intriguing figures in the history of the Anderson community, known statewide for her leadership ability and clout in an era when women were not usually such prominent figures. The historic nature of the Denmark legacy is such that the fascinating play depicting her life is provided in part by the South Carolina Humanities Council. 

The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. Contact the AU Box Office at 864-231-2080 for tickets or for more information.

Lindsay Doggett handed out 36 assists in the game and Lancaster punctuated the win with an ace for the final point.
