South Bend Civic Theatre Presents Pulitzer-Winner ANNA IN THE TROPICS Now thru 7/1

ANNA IN THE TROPICS performs in the Wilson Mainstage Auditorium, 403 N Main St in South Bend, two weeks only, tonight, June 22 through July 1. Set in 1929 Florida in a Cuban-American cigar factory where cigars are still rolled by hand, Anna in the Tropics tells a story of passion and dreams. The arrival of a charismatic new lector, or reader, to entertain the workers in the factory creates a burst of excitement. When he begins to read aloud from the classic "Anna Karenina," the novel's romantic prose sparks hidden desires in his listeners which will change their lives dramatically. 

Playwright Nilo Cruz won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2003 for Anna in the Tropics, and was highly praised for this lyrical and atmospheric play full of powerful language and emotions.

Kevin Dreyer directs Steven Cole, Nick DeDario, Alicia Flores, Patrick Gring, Consuela Howell, Amorena Ruffolo, Patrick Trimboli, and Jared Windhauser.

Tickets are $15 Wednesday and Thursday (7:30 PM), $18 Friday, Saturday (8:00 PM), and Sunday (3:00 PM). Call the Box Office 574-234-1112 (open 12-6 weekdays) or go online: Thanks to sponsors Villing and Company and Majority Builders.
