The first words from Tom Snyder on hearing the news Monday that Anderson University President James Edward plans to step down were, "Oh, goodness."

It was the unguarded reaction of a man who considers Edwards both a close personal friend and a mentor in higher education.

"That's a big sea change," said Snyder, an Anderson resident and president of Ivy Tech Community College. "My interest in higher education was developed by actually having a chance to watch what Jim did in this period of significant change of the school."

The production comes together well at Anderson University's Byrum Hall where performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and a 2:30 p.m. matinee Sunday.
