“Accidentally Yours” Matinee Performance

April 10, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$10
Larry

I pursue a girl and she can’t even tell what I’m doing. I even tell her I’m pursuing her and she says “I see.” — Larry Conwell, played by Phillip Wade

To continue its 40th anniversary season, Brush Creek brings “a farcical, light-hearted and good-natured” comedy to stage. Accidentally Yours, by Pauline Williams Snapp, was first produced in 1949. The show opens on Friday, April 8.

“We’ve set our production in a time and place that may never have really existed outside the confines of the classic television sitcom from the 50s and 60s,” said Director Michael Wood. “But at the same time every one of us knows these characters – as absurd as they can be at times, they are also very real, and they are timeless.”

The play centers on the household of Spencer and Gladys Mosby. Spencer is a small-town history professor who has had a bit of literary success, convincing Gladys that he is the next great American author. As the author describes the Mosbys, “the two are a lovable, child-like couple who believe in the unbelievable. Gladys believes that anything can happen; Spencer is resigned to the conviction that it usually does.” Their niece Vivienne sets her sights on a successful young author who visits the town, and his introduction to the household provides the spark that sets the hilarity . . . and confusion . . . in motion.

The performances run from Friday, April 8 through Sunday, April 24, with performances at 7 pm Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 pm Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets — $10 for adults and $8 for children, seniors and students with ID – will be available at Brush Creek’s two ticket locations: Books-N-Time on Water Street in downtown Silverton and Runaway Art & Craft Studio on Commercial Street in downtown Salem. They also can be purchased at the door 30 minutes before each performance. More information is also available by calling Michael Wood at 503-508-3682.

The playhouse is located at 11535 Silverton Road, the intersection of Silverton and Brush Creek Roads, between Silverton and Salem. In spite of the Silverton Road address, the theater’s parking lot is entered from Brush Creek Road.
