The Westcliffe Center for the Performing Arts (WCPA) is planning to reopen in July for live theater, and for movies later in the year. First up is The Shadow of the Hummingbird, by South African playwright Athol Fugard, most famous in this country for his plays Blood Knot and Master Harold and the Boys.
The Shadow of the Hummingbird is a one-act two-character play featuring an elderly writer (“Oupa,” loosely based on Fugard himself) who is visited by his grandson (“Boba”). The WCPA production will be a family affair in every sense of the word, featuring veteran WCPA actor and audience favorite Thomas “Frosty” Frostman and his own grandson, Max. Performances are scheduled for July 1-4. Evening performances on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, July 1-3, will start at 7 p.m.; the Sunday, July 4, matinee will be at 2 p.m.
Shakespeare in the Sangres will be back with Much Ado About Nothing, featuring Chris Tabb and Shana Abe as Shakespeare’s dueling “witty lovers,” Benedick and Beatrice. The production is slated for slightly later in the summer than usual, but is scheduled for its usual location, the Feed Store Park. It will run Thursday-Friday-Saturday at 6 p.m., July 29 – August 14.
Adults, $20; students (18 and under), and Veterans, $15; kids (12 and under), $5.
Tickets will be available at the WCPA office and at Candy’s Coffee and other local outlets.
