“Sipping”, music on tap this weekend
Tonight, finally, four women from the South are welcoming people to their veranda.
This is a first since March 2020: “The Savannah Sipping Society”, both a meet and a play, opens live and in person at a Port Angeles Community Playhouse tonight. The venue, 1235 E. Lauridsen Blvd. in Port Angeles, is fully guarded.
âSavannah Sipping,â a comedy starring Mindy Gelder, Rebecca Gilbert, Lynne Murphy and Jennifer Saul, is about a chosen family of friends – sharing their fears, self-determination and favorite drinks.
Directed by Timothy P. Thorn in his directorial debut in County Clallam, the show hits the stage at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Tuesdays and at 2:00 p.m. Sundays through October 10.
Tickets are available at communityplayers.org and are priced at $ 15 for adults and $ 8 for students. On Tuesdays, places not already reserved online will be sold for $ 8 at the door. Seats will be spaced between parties at all performances; masks covering the nose and mouth are required, and for spectators 12 years of age and older, full proof of vaccination will be required for entry.
The sippers are: Randa (Gelder), a perfectionist and workaholic struggling to cope with a surprise career derailment; Dot (Saul), who is still reeling from her husband’s recent disappearance and faces a future on her own; Marlafaye (Murphy), a Texan who came to Savannah after losing her unfaithful husband, and Jinx (Gilbert), who offers her life coaching services while neglecting the fact that she is the one in need of wise advice. .
“Each of these women have found themselves alone for various reasons without a family, and together they create the family they deserve,” Thorn said. He added that his own chosen family had brought him to the peninsula after years of working in theaters in California.
âThe Savannah Sipping Society,â written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, is one of the arts and entertainment offerings live this weekend on the Peninsula.
