Earl Hamner, whose TV adaptation of HEIDI once bumped off the air a pivotal late-season pro-football game between the Raiders and the Jets that was tied with 2 minutes to go, will be at the theater to show us how he did it.
At 6:00 p.m. Thursday, November 5th, Earl, along with the cast of the upcoming production, will read from his play, THE HOMECOMING.
Afterwards, this consummate gentleman, who had, for multiple years, 30 million viewers watching his creation (THE WALTONS) every Thursday night, will answer questions about TV, John-Boy, life, love, FALCON CREST (Earl created that, too), Hollywood, THE TWILIGHT ZONE, and anything else you might be wondering about. He will also be signing copies of his books (available to purchase at the theater).
Reception 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Meet and greet Nelson’s native son, buy a book and have him sign it.
Reading 7:30 – 8:30 p.m.
