Calendar Notice for 'Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike' July 12 to August 3

NEW MILFORD, CONN. (May 28, 2019) – On July 12th, TheatreWorks New Milford will premiere Christopher Durang's Award-Winning Comedy, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.

This comedic tale revolves around the relationships of three unusual middle-aged single siblings. Vanya and Sonia's idyllic life in the family home is shattered by the arrival of their movie star sister, Masha and her (much) younger boyfriend, Spike. Threats, accusations, a bad costume party, and a surprisingly effective voodoo doll help these lost souls to finally connect in this Tony Award winning masterpiece inspired by the works of Chekhov and Ibsen.

This production is under the direction of Jocelyn Beard of Wingdale, NY and features the following cast members: David Fritsch of South Salem, NY, Lana Peck of Torrington, CT, Ali Bernhardt of New Milford, CT, Nick Raines of Washington, CT, Maya Jennings Daley of Danbury, CT and Sumiah Gay of New Haven, CT.

Vanya runs Fridays and Saturdays from July 12th through August 3rd, 2019. Curtain time is 8:00 p.m. on Fridays & Saturdays, and at 2:00 p.m. on one Sunday matinee July 20th. Tickets are $25.00 for reserved seating. Students and Military personnel and Veterans with ID will be admitted for $20.00.

On Thursday, July 11th, Senior Citizens are invited to a free dress rehearsal at 8:00 p.m. Thursday July 18th at 8:00 p.m. is TheatreWorks' Pay-What-You-Want night where you name the price of your ticket. Doors open on both Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
