Two pieces by Earl Hamner, Jr., originally written for the TV series, adapted for the stage by Earl Hamner, Jr. and Peter Coy. Most fans of the long-running TV series, THE WALTON’S, don’t realize that creator Earl Hamner also wrote teleplays for the TWILIGHT ZONE. Nelson County’s Hamner Theater brings Hamner’s own twist to bewitchin’ and enchantment to the stage with adaptations of “Jess-Belle,” the tale of a young woman who makes a deal with the Devil for love, and “The Bewitchin’ Pool,” where troubled youngsters escape to and find a happier unreality.
