|‘Shirley Valentine’ encore set for Jan. 25
Main Stage West will present the second encore performance of a critically acclaimed production of “Shirley Valentine” by Willy Russell.
Performances will take place Jan. 25-Feb. 17 at Main Stage West, located at 104 North Main Street in Sebastopol, in the same space where the production originated as part of the Sonoma County Repertory Theater’s 2008 season.
The play was revived at Cinnabar Theater in 2010 where it played to an extended run of sold out houses.
The plot centers on how bored and disillusioned housewife Shirley Valentine wonders how she let vibrancy and joy slip out of her life. She finds herself talking to the walls. But when she chances on a trip to Greece, Shirley finds the adventure, hope, laughs and, ultimately, love she had been missing. The play stars Mary Gannon Graham and is directed by John Shillington.
Performances are 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays (no show on Feb. 2), and 5 p.m. on Feb. 3, 10 and 17.
Tickets range from $15-$25. Reservations can be made by calling 823-0177 or purchased online at www.mainstagewest or www.brownpapertickets.com.
