Proof is the story of an enigmatic young woman, Catherine, her manipulative sister, their brilliant father, and an unexpected suitor. They are all pieces of the puzzle in the search for the truth behind a mysterious mathematical proof. (www.pulitzer.org)
The Ritz, the 1936 Art Deco Movie House, is the home of the The Newberry Community Players, a non-profit, volunteer run organization dedicated to bringing quality theatre opportunities to Newberry and the surrounding areas since 1975.
"I knew I wanted to direct this play because of the complex characters," says board member and director, Courtney Cooper. "It has all the elements we love in a good story: comedy, drama, mystery, romance. It has it all."
The four person cast includes Amy Brower, Tabitha Davis, Samuel Hetler and Lee O Smith.
"This show will make you laugh, cry, think, and hopefully give you something to talk about long after you leave the theatre."
Performance dates are February 16, 17, 23 and 24 at 7pm at 1511 Main St.
