Love Letters

Tickets are now on sale for Curtain Call Theatre Company’s spring production of Love Letters. The production opens on Thursday, March 20th and runs to Saturday, March 22nd. All performances will be at the Journal Printing Building, 119 S. Elson.

The play consists entirely of two performers reading aloud the correspondence between Andrew Makepeace III and Melissa Gardner, two childhood friends who have long since gone their separate ways but continue to share intimate details of their lives in their letters to each other. The poignancy of their shared confidences makes them as spiritually close as lovers can be even as distance and separate lives divide them.

All performances will be dinner theater shows. The building opens at 5:30 each evening for a cash bar, with dinner at 6 pm. Tickets are $20 which includes a complete dinner with a choice of steak, chicken kreps or vegetarian entrée, and coffee or tea. Adult beverages may be purchased at the bar.

All tickets must be purchased in advance at the Wooden Nickel, 112 W. McPherson.
