Players to open 'Stage Door'

DANVILLE — The Danville Area Community College Players, who are part of the college's Liberal Arts Division, will present the revue "Stage Door," written by Edna Ferber and George Kaufman, next weekend.

The performances, open to the general public, will be at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. next Sunday in the Bremer Theater on the DACC campus.

Also, a matinee performance will take place at 10:30 a.m. Thursday for patrons 60 and older. There will be no charge for that, but a freewill offering will be taken.

Using popular and Broadway tunes from the era, "Stage Door," a sort of homage to theater, tells the story of a group of young actresses in the 1930s who live at the Footlights Club while trying to achieve their dream of being on Broadway.
