Returning playwright/performer Kevin Ray Johnson brings his new play, “The Unpredictable Times” to the Pier One stage tonight. Johnson’s play tells the story of five friends returning home after four years of college to find that their lives and relationships have changed.
Starring Casey Parrett, Johnny Hamilton, Peter Sheppard, Sabina Karwowski and director Marc Oliver, the show brings popular local actors to the stage. As usual, advance tickets are available at the Homer Bookstore, as well as the booth in front of the theatre on the night of the play.
Tickets are $8 general admission, with discounts available.
Back on stage for the weekend, “The Imaginary Invalid” follows Argan, a very ill old man, as he arranges his affairs for “the end of his life.”
Argan attempts to marry off his two daughters to mismatched suitors, wills his money to his gold-digger second wife and parades doctors and treatments through his house in vague hopes of getting better. It’s up to his servants to make things right and give poor Argan the wake-up call he needs.
Starring Ken Landfield, Jessica Williams, Peter Norton and special returning guest star Kevin Ray Johnson and director Marc Oliver, this is the final show of the summer season. Disco, puns, songs, dance and physical comedy are the unexpected plusses in a story about dying.
Tickets are available at the Homer Bookstore, or reservations can be made by calling 235-7333. Call Pier One if you’re interested in volunteering and save the price of admission by ushering, handing out programs or taking tickets before the show.
