The Community Players Announce Change Of Opening Date
Tucson, AZ - The Community Players, Tucson's Premier Community Theatre Company,
announced today that they are changing the opening date of their upcoming production of
Josefina Lopez's play Real Women Have Curves. "The change in dates is unfortunate
and not something we like to do," said Scott Berg, President of the board, "there are
a lot of factors to consider when making that decision." The need to re-schedule was
prompted by an unfortunate back injury suffered by one of the cast members.
Because of this injury, and recommendations from her doctor, the cast member decided
it best to follow doctors orders, thus, the need to re-cast. "Absolutely, her health
is by far the most important thing," adds Berg, "we can only hope she has a speedy recovery
and will be back gracing Tucson stages sometime very soon."
The search for a replacement has been successful with the new actress having started
rehearsals this week. Because of the short amount of time between now and the
original opening date, the board has decided to move the opening date from September
9th, 2016 to September 15th, 2016. This will give everyone time to adjust to someone
new and allow time for the new actress to adequately prepare.
The board also decided to add shows on both Thursday the 15 and Thursday the 22nd
since the company couldn't extend the run to match the delay at the beginning due to
a rental commitment to another group.
Real Women Have Curves will open Thursday, September 15th and run through Sunday
September 25, with shows on Thursday, Friday, and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays
at 2:00pm. For reservations call 520-887-6239. The Community Playhouse is located
at 1881 N. Oracle Road, Tucson, AZ 85705. From Grant Road head south on Oracle, turn
right onto Plata, go one block to 13th Ave and turn left. Go about a half block and pull
into the gated parking lot. Entrance to the theatre is off the parking lot through the
green door. Tickets are $10.00.
