WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Community Theatre celebrates its 60th anniversary with Neil Simon’s award-winning musical comedy "They're Playing Our Song."
It is running from Sept. 18 to Oct. 11.
Performances are on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m., with a Thursday performance on Sept. 24 at 8 p.m.
There is also an extra matinee at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10.
Tickets are $28, and $26 for seniors and students.
It is appropriate for all audiences.
The show opens when top music composer Vernon Gersch, played by Mike L'Altrella, hoping to find a new collaborator, meets Sonia Walsk, played by Laura Blackwell, who has already had some success writing lyrics.
When his many awards and accomplishments at his luxury Manhattan apartment awe her, the sparks fly.
She is surprised that his Oscar award is so light, and Vernon quips, "They're chocolate inside."
Gersch and Walsk are essentially the sole characters on stage, each with a three-person Greek chorus acting as their inner voices.
Westport Community Theatre is at 110 Myrtle Ave.
