For those who knew him, there was nothing Doc Hailey couldn’t do. “My mom used to say he was not smart enough to know that there was anything he couldn’t do,” Lavinia Garbee ’90 MEd said of her father, the University of Lynchburg’s first theatre professor, Dr. Robert Carter “Doc” Hailey Sr.
When classes went online in March, everyone at the University of Lynchburg had to figure out how to carry on while being physically separated. Students in Curtain Call, for instance, usually spend the semester at Dillard Fine Arts Center. They work on Curtain Up, a spring concert of original songs written in collaboration with New York City songwriters.
Curtain Call, the University of Lynchburg’s musical theatre ensemble, will perform its annual Curtain Call Cabaret at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, March 27 and 28, in the Dillard Fine Arts Center Theatre. Tickets, available via Etix, are $5 and the show is family friendly.
