Why not celebrate Mother’s Day by treating mom to this wonderful, gorgeous story that lets you escape for a couple of hours to Italy? Vacationers have been transformed by the magic of Italy for centuries: lovers rediscover each other, worn-out spirits are renewed, loneliness and despair lose their hold there. The story of Enchanted April follows four women from post-WWI England as they are changed by the age-old beauty of the Italian coast. Brought together by a newspaper ad, these women from different backgrounds seek relaxation at San Salvatore based on the words "to those who appreciate wisteria and sunshine" - they find themselves.
Performances are May 10, 11, 17, 18, 23, 24, & 25 at 8pm with one matinee on Sunday, May 19 at 2pm. Tickets are $18 ($15 Students/Seniors).
