Coming November 6! Neil Simon’s “I Ought to Be in Pictures”

Brush Creek closes its season with this delightful Neil Simon comedy about . . . what else? . . . relationships and all their quirky twists and turns.

I Ought to be in Pictures, directed by John Sams, opens Friday, November 6 and runs three weekends to close Sunday, November 22.

Sams describes the play this way:

“Herb Tucker has a pretty good life.  He is a blocked Hollywood writer that is chronically out of work, but his girl friend has a good job and doesn’t make many demands on him.  He has a good day at the track just often enough to feed his opinion that he could make a living there.  But life is not always fair, especially when his 19-year old daughter–who he has not seen since she was three–shows up on his doorstep.  Vintage Neil Simon that is sure to tickle your funny bone!”

The show’s cast includes Charlotte Bohlman as Steffy Blondell, Emily Wood as Libby Tucker, and Michael Wood as Herb Tucker. Cathy Sams serves as assistant director.

Performances are at 7 pm on Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 pm on Sundays each weekend. Tickets are $10 ($8 for seniors 60 and over, children 12 and under, and students with ID) and will be available soon at our Brush Creek’s two ticket outlets: Runaway Art & Craft Studio at 311 Commercial in downtown Salem and at 210 N. Water in downtown Silverton.

Tickets are also available at the door 30 minutes before each performance. For more information about tickets and Brush Creek shows call Michael Wood at 503-508-3682.

    • Yes, opening night tickets are still available! You can purchase them up to 5:00 pm today at either of our ticket locations (Runaway Art & Craft at 311 NE Commercial, Salem — 503-881-6270 or Books-N-Time at 210 N. Water Street, Silverton — 503-874-4311). You also can purchase them at the door beginning at 6:30 this evening (and before every performance). You also can call Michael at 503-508-3682 if you’d like us to hold tickets at the door for you.

  2. We have attended a number of your productions and are attempting to get a small group together for either November 13 or 14. At most would probably be 12 people. Can we get tickets at the door or do we need to reserve ahead of time?

    You can reply to my email or leave message by calling 503-364-3202

    • We would love to have you. And you won’t be disappointed!

      You can almost certainly get tickets at the door — and we will hold them for you if you let us know which day you settle on. The real advantage of buying them in advance is that you can move more quickly through the line, so if you’re buying them at the show (and especially if you will be buying them separately) you probably want to be sure to be there at least 20 mins before the performance. Given the “buzz” we’ve heard from the first weekend audiences, we may have bigger crowds than normal at our remaining performances.
