Theatre Works to Open 31st Season with KING O' THE MOON, Begin. 9/13
Theatre Works is proud to announce the opening of its 31st season with "King o' The Moon."Written by Tom Dudzik, the play is directed by Lynn Nadrowski and opens on Friday, September 13, running through Sunday, September 22.
It's the hilarious and heartfelt sequel to Dudzik's "Over the Tavern," which Theatre Works presented in the spring of 2009. The Pazinski family has left the conservative 1950s for the rebellious 1960s - but prior knowledge of this working-class family is not a prerequisite to appreciating their ongoing trials and triumphs.
As Apollo 11 is about to land on the moon, the family gathers to honor their late father's memory, and they quickly become entangled in each others' problems: Rudy is re-thinking the priesthood; Eddie is preparing for fatherhood and Vietnam; and Annie is contemplating divorce as their mother Ellen considers a new romance.
There's rarely a quiet moment in the Pazinski household as they hurtle towards the next decade.
The cast includes: Eric Moberg (Putnam, CT) as Rudy; Ryan DiOrio (Cumberland) as Eddie;Michael Campbell (North Providence) as Georgie; Karen Bessette DiOrio (Cumberland) as Ellen;Bill Beatini (Providence) as Walter; and Shaela Keogh-Walker (Providence) as Maureen.
Showtimes: 8PM on Fridays and Saturdays, and 2PM for Sunday matinees.
Tickets are $19 for adults and $15 for Seniors 62 and older and Children 12 and under.
