The School Marm’s Inn Trouble opens at Brush Creek Playhouse on Friday, September 27 for a three-weekend run. This lighthearted melodrama, written by D. Chappelle, presents an opportunity for cast and audience alike to boo the villain, cheer the hero, and root for heroine Molly Dewdrop as she seeks to make her way in the world.
The melodrama is the prequel to Brush Creek’s 2012 offerings, but Brush Creek veteran director Norman Gouveia, Jr. brings several new and surprising touches to this year’s production.
The show runs from September 27 through October 13, with evening shows at 7 pm on Fridays and Saturdays and a 2 pm matinee on Sundays. The playhouse is located at 11535 Silverton Road (the intersection of Silverton and Brush Creek Roads, between Salem and Silverton).
Brush Creek tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for students with ID, and $7 for children under 12 and seniors 60 and over. Tickets can be purchased at the door beginning 30 minutes before each production and are also available in advance at Brush Creek’s two ticket outlets: Books-N-Time, in downtown Silverton at 210 N. Water St. Suite B (503-874-4311), and Runaway Arts and Craft Studio, in downtown Salem at 311 NE Commercial (503-881-6270).
