Fawnskin, CA, August 12, 2011, noon – The Big Bear Summer Theater Festival comes to the Discovery Center this weekend on Friday and Saturday nights starting at 7 pm each night. The Festival presents “Clarence Darrow,” a visit with America’s lawyer. Darrow brought the working man an eight-hour day and defended the right of a Southern school teacher to explain evolution in the classroom. The show tells the story of emerging America and of how one man stood at the forefront in its legal battles. Darrow reviews much of America’s legal history with humor and emotion. His private life and many contemporary events, including labor conditions, are woven into this story of a man who accepted unpopular cases and defended unpopular causes. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children, and kids under 5 get in free and available on-line at www.bigbeartheater.com or www.bigbearsummertheatrefestival.com. Proceeds benefit the Discovery Center and the San Bernardino National Forest Association.
