WILLMAR -- "Alone Together Again" by Lawrence Roman opens tonight at The Barn Theatre in Willmar. The comedy production will be staged at 7:30 p.m. today through Saturday and Feb. 17-19, and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday and Feb. 20.
George and Helena Butler, played by Dana Anderson and Brenda Santamont, have spent the last 30 years raising three active sons. How they looked forward to the peace, the quiet and the privacy of an empty nest. After considerable comic turmoil and revelation of deep feelings, the nest is finally emptied.
Peace now? Quiet? Not for long. The empty nest fills up again by the sudden, unexpected arrival of their parents, each with a problem which is dumped on them.
Helena's parents, "Pop" or Frank, played by Tim Miller, and Ruth, played by Becky Sorenson, along with George's mother, Grace, played by Nancy Geiger, all move in.
Now, how to empty the nest once again so George and Helena can be alone together?
The show is directed by Thomas Rosengren. Colin Wasmund is the technical director and LouAnne Villnow is the stage manager.
Costumes are by Barb Martins Schneider and props are by Stacey Neuhaus.
The wine bar will be open before the show and during intermission.
