A baker, New York mother, and TV producer come together in The New Century, set to open at U of L this week.
The New Century performances will go on June 16-19 and 22-26 at 7:30 p.m. each night. A matinee show, meanwhile, is set to take place at 2 p.m. on June 19. All performances will go on at U of L's Thrust Theatre, located at the intersection of Floyd and Warnock (same intersection as the McDonalds), in Louisville.
Tickets for the shows are $18 in advance and $20 day of show. Tickets can also be purchased, and more information can be found on the show, at the door or on the Pandora Productions website.
In The New Century, three characters will have their lives intersect at the most opportune or inopportune time, an one-liners are sure to be expected. Helena is the mother of three gay sons and is a member of the POLGBTQCCCO. (See the show to find out what that means.) Charles, meanwhile, produces a gay-themed TV show, and Barbara is preparing a cake in honor of her gay son.
After The New Century, Pandora will be holding open auditions for its upcoming 2011-2012 season. Audition appointments, which are required, can be made by e-mailing [email protected]. More information on the company can be found at the Pandora Productions website.
