Caleb White will film The Boatman at Green River Lake
Movie will be part of masters program work at UL School of Theatre Arts
By Ed Waggener
Caleb White, a graduate of Adair County High School, is working on a movie for his graduate studies at the University of Louisville.
The movie he's written is entitled "The Boatman," and is a modern version of the Greek Myth about Charon, the ferryman who transports souls from one side of life to the other, over the the River Styx.
White's plans are to use Green River Lake at the Mt. Carmel Boat Ramp as a locale. He was in Columbia on Saturday, February 2, 2008, visiting with friends including Sheila Hare of Sheila's Country Junction.
He already has artwork for the film, and was gathering a cast for the play. "I've gotten about half of the cast already," he said. "The Star Theater in Russell Springs has been very helpful," White said.
He film will be about 30-45 minutes long, he said, and will first be screened at the Playhouse Theatre on the University of Louisville's Belknap Campus on April 25 and 26, 2008.

The film will be the third production filmed in Adair County. The other two were also works produced as Masters' degree requirements. They are:
Fairly soon, White will have an internet site available with more information about the film.
