Beyond Her Years


When you're a 16-year-old girl, you have enough problems without looking like you're 72. That's the dilemma facing the main character in Harmony Players' production of Kimberly Akimbo. David Lindsay-Abaire's comedy focuses on a teen who has a disease that makes her age at nearly five times the normal rate. Kimberly not only looks older than everyone around her, but she acts like it too. A drunk dad, a hypochondriac mom, and a felon aunt make plans for a new life in a new town when they suspect Kimberly's disease will take her life. But here's the catch: She's very much alive — just ignored. Kimberly Akimbo plays at 8:30 Fridays and Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays, through Sunday, January 20, at The Harmony Spot, 1227 North Main Street in North Canton. Tickets are $8 to $20.

Sundays, 8:30 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 2:30 p.m. Starts: Jan. 13. Continues through Jan. 20, 2008
