Stephen Elliot Moore joined Dumouchelle and Cramlet to hang lights on Sunday March 11.

James F. Petsche directs the Horton Foote playopening its run Friday March 23 at the 5691 Harlem Road playhouse.

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.

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.
