Encore Players invites you to share in the warmth and humor of American playwright and three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Thornton Wilder. Martie Muldoon and Ray Spooner direct two of his one-act plays and three monologues. Performances will be at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday, December 6-8, at the Bothwell Arts Center, 2466 8th Street, Livermore.
“The Long Christmas Dinner” showcases four generations in the lives of one family. As family members appear, have children, age and depart, only the audience appreciates what changes and what remains the same. In “The Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden”, a family shares observations and laughter on the road to visit the oldest daughter. Rounding out the program are monologues from “The Matchmaker”, a story of love and money.
The cast includes Tim Ackerman, Donna Blevins, Lea Blevins, Lesleyanne Coker, Grare Davis, Don Faul, Judy Fenton, Yana Ghannam, Louie Hesemann, Austin Maisler, Martha McDowell, Meredith Sarboraria, and Robin Spindler.
Tickets can be purchased at the Bankhead box office, online at lvpac.org, or by calling 925-373-6800. Prices are $25 or $20 seniors, 62 years or older. A wine and cookie reception follows each performance.
