Photo Flash: Different Stages' THE CARPETBAGGER'S CHILDREN Opens 3/19

Different Stages presents The Carpetbagger's Children by Horton Foote, directed by Norman Blumensaadt. The show will open this Friday,March 19, and run through April 10, 2010 at the Austin Playhouse, Larry L. King Stage, Penn Field, 3601 South Congress. 

In funny, moving, engaging monologues, three sisters spin the tale of their family and an era. Their father, the eponymous carpetbagger, was a former Union soldier who used his post as county treasurer and tax collector to amass a Texas plantation of twenty thousand acres. Preserving that plantation through the vicissitudes of their lives becomes a central issue for his daughters. It's all about family secrets, tribal memories, sibling rivalry, and how change stalks our lives.

Showtimes are Thursdays - Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.. Pick-your-price tickets are $15, $20, $25, and $30. For tickets and information call 474-8497 or visit http://www.main.org/diffstages/
