YAKIMA - Five of Yakima's most popular veteran actors have come together to bring (Seattle playwright) Kate Forgette's "The O'Conner Girls" to the Warehouse Theatre stage, opening Friday, Sept. 29, and running Thursday through Saturday until Oct. 14.
"The O'Conner Girls" debuted at the Seattle Repertory in 2003 and has been frequently produced around the country.
Actors Peggy Lewis, Grace Schefter, Mary Kloster, Jackie Baker and Kurt Labberton come together in this poignant comedy/drama about a family dealing with the death of an elderly father after a long illness.
Talented actress/director JoRee Murphy, along with veteran producer Jo Murray, also add their years of experience to the production. In fact, if you added up the cast and crew's combined years trodding the Warehouse Theatre boards, along with the many Winnie Awards won by individual production members, the number would be staggering. All the more reason to make a point to see this wonderful show, according to local producers.
Those who plan to attend one of the productions should get ready to laugh and cry and fall in love with the O'Conner family when the Warehouse Theatre Company presents "The O'Conner Girls."
The Warehouse Theatre Box Office opens Friday, Sept. 22, 3 to 6 p.m., at 5000 West Lincoln. Tickets are priced at $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. The box office is normally open 3 to 6 p.m. on weekdays and from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturdays.
Show dates are Sept. 29-30, and Oct. 5-7 and Oct. 12-14, at 8 p.m. each evening.
