First 'Trip' Matinee Selling Briskly

Posted: Tuesday, March 20, 2018, 10:45am

Curtain Players begins its run of Horton Foote's The Trip to Bountiful on Friday March 23, and even before opening night, one performance is sold close to capacity.

As of 1:30 PM Tuesday March 20, the community theatre company has fewer than 10 tickets left to sell for the 2 o’clock Sunday March 25 matinee. There is a Curtain Panels audience talk back with cast and crew following that performance.

Tickets for The Trip to Bountiful are available on this website. Tickets are $17 for adults, $15 for senior citizens and students. Click here.

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.

Set in post-World War II southeast Texas, Horton Foote’s play tells of Carrie Watts, an aging widow and woman of strong faith 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.

James F. Petsche directs the production.
