Winding Road Hosts Silent Auction in October


“Treasures on the Winding Road” to Benefit Theater Ensemble


Tucson, Ariz. – Winding Road Theater Ensemble is hosting a fund-raising event called “Treasures on the Winding Road.” The event will feature a silent auction, music by “Misbehavin’,” scene performances by a number of local theater companies, hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar provided by the Amber Restaurant. Treasures of the Winding Road will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, October 3, 2010 at Santa Fe Square, 7000 E. Tanque Verde Road in Tucson. Tickets are $15 for individuals and $25 for couples and are available by visiting the Winding Road Theater Ensemble web site at or by calling 520-401-3626.


Winding Road Theater Ensemble was established in 2009 by a group of Tucson theater artists whose stated mission is to tell dynamic, theatrical stories that illuminate the human condition and celebrate the theatre’s power to entertain us, move us and bring us joy. Guided by the principle that proscription is the enemy of imagination, they produce plays classic and new, traditional and unconventional, comic and tragic, and tell stories from as many perspectives as they are fortunate to discover.


Members of the Ensemble are Lesley Abrams, Glen Coffman, Amy Erbe, Terry Erbe and Toni Press-Coffman. The Ensemble’s first season featured Dorothy Parker’s Last Call and Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune. Their second season opened with the premier of Toni Press-Coffman’s Armor, at Zuzi’s Theater until September 19, 2010.


In January 2011, the Ensemble presents The Lion in Winter by James Goldman at Christ Presbyterian Church, 6565 E. Broadway Blvd., Tucson. With a preview on Jan. 13, the show opens on Jan. 14, and runs Jan. 15, 16, 21, 22, 23, 28, 29 and 30, 2011. In April 2011, Ensemble members Glen Coffman and Terry Erbe will direct two Lanford Wilson plays, Talley’s Folly and Fifth of July, in repertory at the Cabaret Space at the Temple of Music and Art, 330 S. Scott in Tucson, AZ. The shows open March 25, 2011 and run through April 17, 2011 with no performance on Friday, April 15, 2011.



(Last Weekend to See:)


Eva Tessler directs this family drama with a social conscience. Set in Washington, D.C., Armor is about a brilliant budding cellist trying to make sense of her father’s involvement in a political battle over body armor for our troops in the Middle East. The play is interspersed with cello and piano music that punctuate its emotional ebb and flow. Developed with a grant from the Sloan Foundation, Armor is the winner of the 2010 Arizona Theatre Company Playwriting Contest.

Armor is playing at Zuzi’s Theater, 738 North Fifth Ave., Tucson. The final performances are this weekend, Sept. 17, 18 and 19, 2010. All evening shows are at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday matinee is at 3 p.m. Tickets cost $18, with group, student, senior, military and theater artist discounts available for $15. Reservations can be made at <>  or by calling 520-401-3626.
