'Trevor' Set Build Saturday April 15

Posted: Sunday, April 2, 2017, 4:59pm

Curtain Players has announced its next Set Build Saturday event, an April 15 work day to construct the set for the community theatre company’s next production, Trevor. Mark Blessing is the scene designer. Michael Fusco is director.

Work is to begin at 9 AM and continue into the mid to late afternoon. Volunteers are welcome for all or part of the day. The theatre provides pizza for lunch.

Booth Muller, the theatre’s technical director, said volunteers should bring along drills with #2 Phillips bits if they have them, but no experience or equipment is required for participation.

To best plan for an efficient work day, volunteers are asked to register by contacting Muller, at tech.director@curtainplayers.org

Questions about Set Build Saturday may be directed to Muller at that address.

Trevor, a play by Nick Jones, plays at 8 PM Fridays and Saturdays May 5-6, 12-13 and 19-20, with 2 o’clock matinees Sundays May 14 and 21. Tickets are on sale now. Click here to order.

Patrons are advised that Trevor is recommended for audiences ages 13 and older because of some adult language.

Inspired by true events, Trevor is a subversive comedy about fame, success, and the lies we tell ourselves in order to keep people from taking away an erratic, 200-pound chimpanzee. At the center of this hilarious and heart-wrenching play are two individuals fighting against a world unable to understand their relationship: Trevor, a chimpanzee who once performed in commercials, and his owner Sandra, who swears he would never hurt a fly… at least not on purpose. A moving exploration of family, flawed communication, and humanity.
