WTG Presents Tony Award-winning Play GOD OF CARNAGE and WAITING FOR OPRAH
March 6 at 7:30 pm, March 7 & 8 at 8 pm and March 9 at 2 pm.
Following a playground fight between two boys, their parents meet to discuss the incident. But a rational discussion among adults quickly devolves into a childish evening of name-calling, tears and tantrums. Winner of the 2009 Tony award for Best Play, and adapted into a movie in 2011, God of Carnage is a bitterly comic, powerhouse piece of theatre and a must see. With only four performances, reserve your tickets now!
Director, Laura LaCour and four very talented actors bring this award winning play to life From March 6th to 9th at the Burton Leavitt Theatre. There will be a talk back after each performance which will allow you to interact with the director and actors. Make your reservations today by calling 423-2245 or visiting www.windhamtheatreguild.com. (Contains strong language. Not appropriate for children.)

Waiting for Oprah Replaces Emma in May/June-Auditions on March 24th and 25th
For reasons beyond our control, we have had to replace the WTG's May/June production of Emma. We have selected a new comedy by award-winning playwright Mary Miller called Waiting for Oprah.
Description: It's the last meeting of the First Tuesday Book Club (which meets on Thursday!) and Allison, Mia, Fran, Louise, and Janice are all anxiously awaiting the arrival of their celebrity guest. Janice is determined to make a good impression despite the fact she hasn't read the book. Louise is thrilled at the idea of being in the same room as Oprah. Allison, however, is not convinced that Oprah's arrival will do anything but disrupt the meeting. Mia, arriving late as usual, is simply delighted that she hasn't missed anything yet. And Fran is just waiting for a miracle to change the course of her entire life.
As one hour rolls into the next, with no sign of their guest, the women jump from conclusion to conclusion as they speculate on: Why she is coming? What will she bring? Does this outfit make me look fat? But the question: Will Oprah come? ... is ultimately not as important as why they are there and what they learn about themselves and what they mean to each other.
Waiting for Oprah will be performed on the same dates and times as Emma. If you already have tickets to Emma, new tickets will be sent to you. If you have any questions or would like to make reservations please contact the WTG at 860-423-2245 or www.windhamtheatreguild.com.
