Springs Theatre readies first summer show

The Springs Theatre Company is excited to announce they are currently in production for their second Summer Starlight Series barbecue suppers and shows!

Presented in the Pavilion Tent at Harman Park, audiences will be treated to a different show each month in June, July, and August. Before the June and August shows, guests will dine on a delicious supper of barbecue brisket or barbecue chicken (a vegetarian option is available by request), fresh cole slaw, cowboy baked beans, rolls and butter, hot fruit cobbler, lemonade and coffee. A well stocked Zuber Fizz soda bar will also be available for those in need of a little carbonation.

First up in the Summer Starlight Series is the cleverly funny “The Plot Thickens, or, It’s All In The Script”. This melodrama within a melodrama is set in present day and follows a troupe of actors, the stage manager Randi, and the director Roscoe, as they rehearse and eventually perform a play set during the turn of the last century. Little do they know how much their everyday lives mirror the characters that they are portraying!

This family friendly comedy takes the stage Fridays and Saturdays, June 12, 13, 19, and 20.

Doors will open for each performance at 6:30 p.m. with preshow entertainment until 7 when the buffet opens. Admission is $28 for adults, $18 for children 12 and under and includes the supper and the show. Advance seating tickets for all three shows are on sale now at The Plaid Pony (731-5262) or online at www.SpringsTheatreCompany.org.
