Easter Detours 'Trip' Schedule

Posted: Tuesday, March 6, 2018, 11:55am

The Curtain Players production of The Trip to Bountiful is running on a special performance schedule to accommodate the Easter holiday Sunday April 1.

There will be eight performances over three weekends, per the customary Curtain Players calendar, but the usual second Sunday matinee has been moved to the first weekend to allow the Bountiful production team and our patrons to celebrate the Easter holiday.

Curtain Players presents The Trip to Bountiful at 8 PM March 23-24, 30-31, and April 6-7, with 2 o’clock matinees Sundays March 25 and April 8. There is no performance on Easter Sunday, April 1. Tickets are on sale now. Click here to order.

A Curtain Panels audience talk back session is scheduled for after the Sunday March 25 matinee.

A food drive to benefit Westerville Area Resource Ministry is being conducted during performances. Patrons are asked to bring five non-perishable food items with them to the playhouse.

Set in post-World War II southeast Texas, Horton Foote’s play tells of Carrie Watts, an aging widow who runs away from her son Ludie and daughter-in-law Jessie Mae and their cramped Houston apartment to realize her dearest dream: to return to her beloved hometown, Bountiful. What starts as an ordinary trip soon becomes an inspiring and life-changing journey of discovery.
