Curtain Players recognizes the volunteers who worked to build the set for Crimes of the Heart, now in performance at the 5691 Harlem Road playhouse.

The following individuals generously shared their time and talents with the community theatre during two Set Build Saturdays November 11 and 18, and during other daytime work opportunities: Cory Baker, Jeff Cramlet, Denise Dumouchelle, Sylvia Gonzalez, Jan Halada, Jack Halada, Carol Jakubczak, Jeff Kemeter, Susie McGarry, Ben Merkey, Casey Merkey, Liz Merkey, Sarah Merkey, Stephen Elliot Moore, Jane Mowder, Booth Muller, Colleen Nerney, Kirsten Peninger, Karen Robertson, Eric Shook, Jackie Herrera Salvador, Heather Schultz, and Alice Young.

Crimes of the Heart set designer Mario Salvador and technical director Booth Muller led the work effort.

Sarah Merkey directs Beth Henley’s Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy, in which three eccentric Southern sisters come together after one shoots her husband, exposing their unique quirks, longings, and regrets as each comes to terms with the consequences of her own "crime of the heart."

Crimes of the Heart opened its run Friday December 1, and continues performances at 8 PM Fridays and Saturdays December 8-9 and 15-16, with 2 o’clock matinees Sundays December 10 and 17. Tickets are on sale now. Click here to order. Patrons are advised that Crimes of the Heart is recommended for audiences ages 13 and older.
