Rivercity Players – Just Desserts
October 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Rivercity Players is delighted to offer something new to their audiences – dessert!
Their fall production, “Just Desserts”, will feature 3 one act plays, and one sweet intermission.
The evening starts with Wanda’s Visit, directed by John Godfrey. We all love our wives/husbands, but how much do we love them? Maybe our relationship has plateaued – we are satisfied, but the shine is now burnished. How cool can we be when a former flame sidles back into the picture twenty years later? How will your life partner react? This hilarious production is a stage adaptation taken from the PBS series Trying Times, and is performed by Don Pennell, Darlene Carr, Kelly McDonald and Sara O’Haver.
The Bright Side of Being Blue comes next, and is directed by Tim Myerscough. A theatrical manager schemes to keep a country music star successful by making him unhappy so he will write more of his chart-stopping sad songs. But the star is just too easy going, especially after he falls in love with a bubbly country singer whose cheerfulness may ruin his career. This award winning comedy is performed by Alistair Taylor, Lynne Macara, Stephen Bishop and Sara O’Haver.
The last play of the evening is both comic and poignant. Directed by Susan Wydenes, Post-Its (Notes on a Marriage) explores the ups and downs of a relationship that were unexpectedly captured on scraps of paper. An actor and actress read the Post-Its between a couple that span the duration of their lives together. This heartwarming play is performed by Glen Clark and Kim Stevens.
Intermission will feature dessert, included in the ticket price.
Tickets: $20 (+applicable taxes & fees)
