River City Players have been and are so very busy. Rehearsals for our summer show "A Bench in the Sun" take place Monday through Thursday, the set is being built, costumes being gathered and altered, plus other activities and photo shoots for our publicity. The cast of this upcoming show participated in the Summer Arts Festival at the River Campus this past Saturday. They performed a few scenes for people that were attending the activities at the Campus. Earlier that morning the cast went around town posing on different benches for a contest we have going on. This past Monday and the next two Monday's to follow, a picture was and will be posted with the cast sitting on a bench somewhere around Cape on our River City Players page on Facebook. The first person to comment with the correct answer of where the bench is located wins a gift that they can claim at any show that they make reservations for. Lindsay Baker was the winner of the first photo bench location. Flyers have been posted all around town at businesses that support RCP. This is such a fun, fun, show that you do not want to miss. How great that you can come and see a production that everyone can relate to in some form or matter. It is a full length comedy and deals with the lives of three seniors who form a bond between them sharing stories of love, aches and pains, and how happy they are for the life they live. You will also get a kick out of the Activity director of the home that tries her best to keep the seniors in line and help them keep up with the schedule,activities and the menu for the day.
The show dates are July 10,11,12,13. The 10 and 13 dates are dessert shows and the 11,12 dates are dinner shows. The 13th is a matinee so those that don't like getting out at night you can enjoy the matinee! For reservations call Port Cape 573-334-0954. You need to get those reservations made now as the seats are going fast. As always I will see you at the THEATRE!
