For the next two weeks, we have the perfect answer to the question, "What should we do after dinner?" We are lucky in Salem to have excellent local theater, and for the next two weeks our Salem Theatre Company is raising the curtain on the romantic comedy Shooting Star.
Here's STC's information on Shooting Star:
The Salem Theatre Company will produce Steven Dietz’s romantic comedy Shooting Star, as part of their Music & More Series for eight performances only from August 3 to Sunday August 14. The production is directed by STC Artistic Director, John Fogle. The two person play features Sarah Carlin of Beverly and Dave Rich of Marblehead. Salem’s Emma Cavaliere will serve as production Stage Manager.
Snowed in overnight at a middle-America airport, college lovers Elena Carson and Reed McAllister have an unexpected and life-altering reunion. Elena has stayed true to her hippie-ish, counter-culture path, while Reed has gone predictably corporate and conservative. As the night gives way to laughter, banter, remembrance and alcohol, Elena and Reed revisit a past that holds more surprises than they imagined—and a present that neither of them could have predicted.
The production runs from August 3 to Sunday August 14 at the STC Theater, 90 Lafayette Street in Salem. Performances are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 5:00 p.m. Tickets are available online now at www.salemtheatre.com or can be reserved for pick up at the box office by calling 978-790-8546, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Online ticketing ends 24 hours in advance of each performance.
