Creatives Ready to Make 'Trip'

Posted: Friday, January 19, 2018, 8:00am

Curtain Players has announced the creative team working to stage The Trip to Bountiful for presentation on the Harlem Road playhouse stage March 23-April 8.

James F. Petsche is directing The Trip to Bountiful. Booth Muller and Petsche are co-producers for the production. Carolyn Jakubczak is stage manager.

They are joined by: Jeff Cramlet (master electrician); Denise Dumouchelle (lighting designer and lightboard operator); Laura Smith Hill (costumer); Holly Wetmore Kemeter (costumer); Kurt Mueller (sound designer); Booth Muller (set designer); Jackie Herrera Salvador (properties coordinator), Julie Emmert Silvius (assistant to the director) and Vince Staropoli (music producer). Kate Tull is artistic adviser for this production.

In what may be Horton Foote’s best-known play, an aging widow runs away from her son and daughter-in-law 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.

The Trip to Bountiful will play at 8 PM Fridays and Saturdays March 23-24, 30-31, and April 6-7, with 2 o’clock matinees Sundays March 25 and April 8. There is no performance Easter Sunday, April 1. Tickets for the production are on sale. Click here to order. A Curtain Panels audience talk back is scheduled for after the Sunday March 25 matinee.
