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 www.windingroadtheater.org 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.
(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 www.windingroadtheater.org <http://www.windingroadtheater.org/> or by calling 520-401-3626.
