Welcome to The Actors Theater -
Next up: A full summer for The Actors Theater
July 17 and 18: "Three Viewings" 7 pm at Random Howse
Next up is a production of Jeffrey Hatcher's award winning play: "Three Viewings" that you don't want to miss. It is not often that we repeat a play. First presented in 2000, this very special play is one is of the exceptions. The cast will make you laugh and make you cry.
"Three Viewings" consisits of three monologues set in a midwestern funeral parlor over a three-day weekend:
TELL-TALE is the story of Emil (played by Chris Evans), the mild-mannered undertaker whose unspoken passion for a local real-estate woman leads him to commit crimes and plot a way to confess his true feelings before time—and bodies—run out.
THE THIEF OF TEARS is Mac (Suzanne Gropper), a beautiful Los Angeles drifter, who makes her living stealing jewelry from corpses.
THIRTEEN THINGS ABOUT ED CARPOLOTTI is the story of Virginia (Patty Monaco), the widow of a wheeler-dealer contractor, who discovers that her husband has left her in debt to the banks, her family and the mob.
And August: The Surprise Visit
The Actors Theater is proud to present the first public Readers Theater production of the romantic comedy “The Surprise Visit” by local playwright Ron Herman. Cynthia has broken off her engagement to Bobby but has been afraid to tell her parents. What happens when her parents make an unexpected visit to help her get ready for the wedding? Lots!! Fortunately, all’s well that end’s well. Join us at Random Howse at 7 pm on Thursday, August 14th and Friday, August 15th for the world premier of this new play.
Closing out our Summer:
"Love Song" at the Grange
September will see the Actors Theater moving back to the Grange to present a full production of “Love Song” by John Kolvenback. Called: “Richly comic and deeply touching.” and “Outstanding” we learn that Beane (played by Zach Knight) is an exile from life—an oddball. Following a burglary on Beane's apartment, his sister, Joan (Melinda Milligan), and brother-in-law, Harry (Tom Fiscus) are baffled to find her brother blissfully happy and try to unravel the story behind his mysterious new love, Molly (Cara Russell). Some strong language may make this play unsuitable for younger children.
“Love Song” will have seven performances between September 12th and 28th.
Tickets for all performances are $10 and are available at Darvills, on line (Click the Show on the the left panel and at the door. Tickets for the performances at Random Howse are also available at Random Howse. For additional information call Doug Bechtel at 317-5601.
