It’s Monday night at the Wright Auditorium in Petersburg. Actors are taking their places on the stage getting ready for a dress rehearsal.
“We just can hardly wait,” says Irene Littleton, the play’s director. “They’re all amped up and ready to go.”
It’s just a few more nights until the opening show. Tonight, they are working out the finer details of the production, how the lighting will be, the costume details, and how the music will flow.
Orin Pierson is helping Littleton as a finishing director giving a second pair of eyes to the final details.
The plot is easy to follow. It has good-guy characters like Priscilla Purity and Hugh Dono. And, of course, there are bad guys too like the villain, Victoria Vornado.
The show is for all ages. It will be performed Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Wright Auditorium. Doors will open for the show at 6:30 p.m. each night. Tickets can only be purchased at the door. It’s $10 for adults; $5 for kids and senior citizens.
