Sparks Fly in ‘Back Porch’ at the Victory Theatre

The play “Back Porch” recently premiered at Victory Theatre in Burbank. The production will run through July 9.

With a charming coming-of-age story, “Back Porch” pays homage to the classic play that inspired the Columbia film, as well as the art of movie making. The play is set in 1955, when Hollywood descends upon a small Kansas town to shoot scenes for the film “Picnic,” starring William Holden and Kim Novak.

“When I was 4 years old, portions of the film ‘Picnic’ were filmed one county away from my home,” said Kansas-born playwright Eric Anderson. “My family took part in the ‘Neewollah’ scene on the river. I’ve been crazy about movies — and theater — ever since.”
