Empty nests subject of Paxton play
PAXTON — The Tri-County Players will present at the Market Street Theatre this and next weekend "The Kids Left. The Dog Died. Now What?"
The show is described as a heartfelt look at the day-to-day concerns of over-50 empty-nesters. The musical comedy revue by Carole Caplan-Lonner premiered at the New York Musical Theatre Festival in 2007.
"Perhaps you can relate to the tortures of gravity on your body, keeping your marriage 'interesting,' finding a 'new love' in today's dating scene and more," reads a release from the theater company. "The risks and uncertainties of the aging baby boomer come alive through songs and dialog."
The production is directed by Tammy Belanger and features veteran cast members Suzanne Alt, Tammy Belanger, Greg and Pam Herriott, and Tom and Sherry Janowski. New to Tri-County Players is Phil Duling of Paxton.
Chuck Belanger provides musical direction and leads the pit band.
A dinner theater catered by the Tin Pan will be offered at 6 p.m. Friday. Tickets for the dinner theater are $27 per person or $50 per couple. A cash bar will also be available. Dinner theater seating is by paid reservation only. Tickets to all other shows are $12 each.
The curtain times are 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. Reservations may be made by calling 379-7028 or through marketstreettheatre.com. Credit card payments can be accepted through the website.
The theater is at 120 N. Market St., Paxton.
