The board of The Moon Theatre is pleased to announce the selection of the cast and director for the up coming production of A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters. The cast is filled by two of The Moon Theatre Companies most experienced actors. Playing the part of Melissa Gardner is Pam Strahan. Rick Paddon plays the part of Andrew Makepeace Ladd III.
Collaborating with The Moon Theatre Company is director Don Kraus. With many years of acting and directing experience, Don brings strong direction to the production.
Gurney, known as a very prolific playwright, earned a nomination for the 1990 Pulitzer Prize in Drama for Love Letters. The play is written in an epistolary form which consists of a series of letters or diary entries read by the actors. The compelling advantage of this form of story telling is that it adds a greater level of detail and realism to the story without having to resort to narration.
Love Letters will have a run of 4 shows over two weekends at the Four Square Church, 500 4th Street, in Berthoud. Showtime is 7:30 PM Friday and Saturday evenings, March 5th & 6th and again on the 12th and 13th. Tickets are $8.00 for general admission and $5.00 for seniors and students and may be purchased at the door. Reservations may be made by calling 970-301-8513 and leaving a message.
