Tree Damages Building Used in Snow Camp Dramas

July 8, 2013

Managers of two outdoor dramas in Snow Camp, N.C., say the shows will start this week on time even though a tree damaged one of the main set pieces.

The tree fell Sunday during a storm on a set piece for “The Sword of Peace” and “Pathway to Freedom,” which open Thursday and Friday, respectively. The tree damaged the roof and walls of a building that’s used as the Cane Creek Meeting House in “The Sword of Peace” and as a schoolhouse in “Pathway to Freedom.”

No one was on set when the tree fell as the actors were on a dinner break.

Snow Camp Outdoor Theatre operational manager Chelsey Wilson says workers with a tree service company removed the part that fell on the building.

Dress rehearsals begin Wednesday.
