The cast has been selected and rehearsals have begun.
â€śBlack Comedyâ€ť by Peter Shaffer will be performed as a fundraiser to help restore the Sweetwater Municipal Auditorium.
The play is about Brindsley Miller, a young sculptor and his debutante fiancĂ©e Carol Melkett. The couple have borrowed some expensive, antique furniture from his neighbor Haroldâ€™s flat without his permission in order to impress an elderly millionaire art collector coming to view Brindsleyâ€™s work, and Carolâ€™s father Colonel Melkett. When the power fails, Harold returns early, and Brindsleyâ€™s ex-mistress Clea shows up unexpectedly, things slide into disaster for him.
Performance dates are July 17-19 at 7:30 p.m. each night. Tickets will be $5 per person with children 5 and under free. For more information, contact Katy at 325-436-1510.
