Brush Creek’s 2015 teen/young adult show — a romantic comedy entitled “You Know I Don’t Love You” — opens in less than three weeks. In the show written by Emily Wood and Michael Wood, the 2005 Fighting Toucans from Aldous Huxley high school gather for their high school reunion. Old relationships flare and fizzle, while new relationships ignite, in this romantic comedy that helps more than one Toucan graduate realize that “you know I don’t love you” carries a variety of meanings.
The production opens on Friday, September 18 and runs thru Sunday, October 4, with shows at 7 pm on Fridays and Saturdays and a 2 pm matinee each Sunday. They are $10 for general admission, with $8 discounted tickets available to seniors 60 and over, children 12 and under, and students with ID. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Books N Time on Water in downtown Silverton or at Runaway Art and Craft Studio on Commercial in downtown Salem. They also are available 30 minutes before each performance begins at the theater, which is located at the intersection of Brush Creek and Silverton roads.
The production is appropriate for older children and unlikely to trouble young children, although there is a certain amount of conflict, mild language and sexual tension.
