Love Letters

By A.R. Gurney
August 13 - 22
Lions & Lioness Pavilion
Shows at 8:15 pm except Matinees on Sunday at 2:00 pm
$18 | General Admission

A staged reading.

The piece is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.

Elizabeth and Hattie are sitting on the front porch whiling away the time folding laundry, watching TV, sipping bourbon and Coke, and gossiping. There are secrets in small towns, and todays secret blurted out by their friend Amy, is that Ray has been seen around town with another woman.

Lone Star

By James McLure

Lions & Lioness Pavilion

Shows at 8:15 pm except Matinees on Sunday at 2:00 pm

A staged one act play.

From the backyard of a small-town Texas bar Roy, a brawny, macho guy who had once been a local high-school hero, is back after a tour in Vietnam. He and his brother Ray sit down to consume a case of beer midst tales of Roy's military and amorous exploits.

The play is a hilarious study of a pair of Texas "good ole boys" on a Saturday night.
