Antelope Valley Thespians present MISS FOZZARD FINDS HER FEET and A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE by Alan Bennett

Antelope Valley Thespians present MISS FOZZARD FINDS HER FEET and A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE by Alan Bennett.

June 8, 9, 10, 15, 16

at the Antelope Valley Winery

Antelope Valley Thespians Presents:

Two monologues from The Complete Talking Heads.
Produced by arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Alan Bennett’s award-winning series of solo pieces is a classic of contemporary drama, universally hailed for its combination of razor-sharp wit and deeply felt humanity. First produced for BBC television in 1988 to great critical acclaim, the Talking Heads monologues also appeared on the West End Stage in London in 1992 and 1998. In 2002, seven of the pieces were performed at the Tiffany Theater in Los Angeles for a highly praised brief engagement, and in 2003 a selection of the monologues premiered in New York at the Minetta Lane Theatre. These extraordinary portraits of ordinary people confirm Alan Bennett’s place as one of the most gifted, versatile, and important writers in the English Language.

Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 4pm. There is no performance Sunday June 17th.

Produced by Nikki L. Martin
Directed by Missy May and Nicelle Davis
Starring Rachel Jennings and Jan Jensen

$8 general / $6 students

NOVEMBER 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 18, 19, 20
by Richard Greenberg

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, New York.

A year after he disappeared on the day of his father’s funeral, Walker Janeway returns to New York. Here he finds a clue to his troubled past: “April 3-5: Three days of rain.” So begins the curious journal of Ned Janeway, the father that Walker thought he knew. In Act II, we travel back in time to the mid-1960’s, where we are offered an alternative, unexpectedly romantic perspective of the family story. A many-layered drama peppered with witty moments that make us smile, Three Days of Rain ultimately questions every one of those little stories that we tell ourselves—the ones we need in order to make sense out of life.

Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 4pm. There is no performance on Sunday, November 13th.

This play contains strong language. We do not recommend it for young children.

Remaining tickets not sold in advance online will be available at the door, 30 minutes prior to curtain, via cash or check only. 

The Friday Nov. 5th performance (opening night) is our PATRON PREVIEW NIGHT. Patrons of AVT get in free, and all other tickets are just $5.

Playing at It’s Only Tuesday Productions

September 22 – October 8
Thursday – Saturday
Featuring Jacob Robison & the 2011 Featured Actress In A Musical 
ENCORE award winning Actress 
Michelle Piccirillo Hargreaves

The Last Five Years is a one act Musical written by Jason Robert Brown
 It premiered in Chicago in 2001 and was then produced off-Broadway in March 2002. Since then it has had numerous productions both in the United States and internationally.
The story explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hyatt, a struggling actress. The show uses a form of storytelling in which Cathy’s story is told in reverse chronological order (beginning the show at the end of the marriage), and Jamie’s is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple have first met). The characters do not directly interact except for a wedding  in the middle as their timelines intersect.
