Ladies of the Alamo Kicks off Theatre Season
South Puget Sound Community College is pleased to debut its 2009-10 theatre season with Ladies of the Alamo, which began last weekend and runs through Nov. 8.
The setting is the lavish reception room of the new multi-million dollar Alamo Theatre, a regional theatre complex that has grown from a small operation in a converted church to one of the glories of Texas culture. As the action begins we learn that the leadership of Dede Cooper, founder and artistic director of the Alamo, is being challenged, and the Chairman of the Board, a lady of great wealth and lust for power, is scheming to replace Dede with a fading Hollywood star. As the hour of the decisive board meeting nears, Dede and her supporters maneuver to outflank the opposition, and as the crisis point is reached the verbal battles and shocking revelations build to fever pitch.
The performance runs Nov. 5-7 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 8 at 2 p.m.
Ladies at the Alamo, written by Paul Zindel and directed by Don Welch, is presented by the South Puget Sound Community College Drama Department and is preformed in special agreement with Dramatist Play Service. The play takes place at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts.
Tickets are $12.50 for the general public and $10 for student, faculty and staff. South Puget Sound students can purchase tickets for $2.50 with their IDs. Tickets are available at the Washington Center box office at (360) 753-8586.
