Laugh ’til you cry.

Do you like football? Especially high school and college football?   A home run by the underdog team? If so, then you have the type of personality that would love to be sitting in the Rose Center to watch a hysterical David and Goliath, sweet love story, complete with mystery, and happy ending and lots to talk about on the drive home otherwise known as “Adam’s Eve.”

What’s so special about live community theater? Besides a wonderful story, you see your neighbors and friends, or names you’ve seen before but didn’t yet befriend, risk being criticized, or even failure.  Just so you can enjoy a couple of hours and forget the day’s problems. And much like college football, you are not watching professionals. You are watching amateurs, digging deep in themselves to transform and present a character, knowing there exists the possibility of criticism, and maybe even failure.  

 

Actors know that living a full life, both on a personal and professional level involves risk.  It involves winning and losing. It means being on a team, with a higher purpose other than one’s own personal happiness.  It means contributing to the happiness of every person in the audience and every person involved in the show that is depending on each actor giving it all they got.

If you want entertainment, then come see the show.  You will love it. And if you want to see your neighbors giving their all,  then come see these brave people, who demonstrate courage, hard work and talent.  For whatever reason, please go see Adam’s Eve, starting this weekend at the Rose Center.

New Tradition Time

Image may contain: fruit and foodIs it time for a new Thanksgiving tradition?  I don’t mean food. I’m talking family activities, like watching football, shopping on Black Friday, board games games in the parlor. And what is a parlor anyway?  

Here’s one idea that will make the whole family laugh, and give them something to talk about. Take in a show put on by your local community theatre.  In this particular case, I’m suggesting The Theatre Guild’s “Adam’s Eve”.  No, it is not a rehash of the story of the first human beings and the first ever recorded lover’s quarrel, but a more updated version.

Without telling you too much, Adam, an avid sports enthusiast, opens his closet and is shocked to find a beautiful woman, claiming to be the second Eve, sent to tip the balance of the world to the good.  But can she convince Adam, his mother, aunt, and his goofy best friend Mark? Maybe, but the bigger challenge will be convincing Adam’s girlfriend Marla, and her co-worker, Dr. Griffin, both psychiatrists?

Like many of our favorite movies the family watches, Adam’s Eve will bring you lots of laughter but also inspire you.

If you need more convincing, the bottom line is this.  It will be good wholesome fun for everyone. And you know how difficult it is to find that these days.  In addition, you will support the arts and the creative endeavors of your friends. You might even want to try out some day. I promise, you won’t be disappointed,Guaranteed.

Show dates are November 16, 17, 18, 23, & 24 at Rose Center’s Prater Hall.  Consider becoming a sponsor too. For details, visit http://www.theatreguildinc.org/.
