Badin 100 years


Monday, January, 14, 2013 — Matt Steed plays a tune on a Native American flute during the stage production of "This Is Who We Are," a play depicting a brief history of Badin. Steed, a.k.a. “Big Frog,” demonstrated the heritage of the paleolithic people of Badin as he paraded up and down the aisles of the auditorium doing a traditional dance, marking this play as an interesting piece of interactive theatre. Shane Harbeson (right), a member of the Talent Company and the Uwharrie Players, portrays a 1915-era Badin school student having his ear turned after being caught in a moment of mischief by Farmer Scott, played by James Woodson (far right), who is making his Stanly County debut performance in the play. Woodson’s twin brother, John, is the stage manager for the production. The play continues at 3 p.m. Jan. 13 at the Badin Elementary School auditorium.
