Local student to perform in CMU’s ‘The Whipping Man’

MANISTEE — Avery Keifer, of Manistee, will play the role of Caleb in Central Michigan University’s production of “The Whipping Man” later this month.

“The Whipping Man” tells the story of a wounded Confederate soldier who returns home to find his family gone, his home in ruins and only two of his former slaves surviving. The three men wait for signs of life to return to the city, sharing their secrets and sorrows until the play reaches its shocking conclusion.

The production takes place at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 30, Jan. 31, Feb. 1 and Feb. 2 and 2 p.m. on Feb. 3 in Bush Theatre. Tickets are available at CMU Ticket Central.

Keifer is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in theater and interpretation at CMU. He is the son of Nate and Sheila Keifer, of Manistee.
