WORDS, WORDS, WORDS & MUSIC (2021)
At last, an in-person Players' show! After 14 months of a dark theater, the curtain is rising at Staples Auditorium and no one who has endured a pandemic should miss it. The (socially distanced) audience will be treated to five irreverent comedic plays by master of wit David Ives, plus two mini musicals-think theater meets Saturday Night Live, minus the celebrity guest host but with 21 of your favorite Players stars. David Roth (SHS '84) and Kerry Long (SHS '97) co-direct, with choreographer Rachel Macissac and music director Don Rickenback ensuring Broadway-worthy song and dance numbers. Performances are May 20, 21 & 22 at 7:30 pm and May 22 at 2 pm. Tickets are on sale at staplesplayers.com (a combo of culture starvation and fewer seats may create a toilet-paper-in-2020 type situation, so jump on it!). Masks required. There will also be a virtual livestream on June 6 at 6 pm.
