Annual Melodrama at Brush Creek Playhouse Opens Friday, September 27

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). More information is also available by  contacting Michael Wood at 503-508-3682.

The  School Marm is  Brush Creek’s second-to-last show of the 2013 season, with the annual teen/young  adult show, The Time Traveler, set to  run in November.
