The Techeland Arts Council’s production of its No Hitchin’ folk history series installment, Bayou Storm Rising, opens Friday, April 26, and runs through Wednesday, May 1, at the Teche Theatre for the Performing Arts, 501 Main St., Franklin.

The Sunday matinee begins at 2 p.m. All other performances start at 7 p.m.

Bayou Storm Rising, directed by Diane Wilz and written by Sue Davis and Roger Stouff, is based on true stories of the rural communities in St. Mary Parish.

The production brings the legendary warmth of the people of Bayou Teche to the stage with their wit, courage and resilience as a whirling hurricane threatens a quaint sugar cane farming town in south Louisiana.

Tickets are $15.
