The Lantern Theatre and Conway Community Arts will present “Amateurs” by Tom Griffin on Sept. 20, 21, 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m. and Sept. 22 and 29 at 2:30 p.m. at the Lantern Theatre, 1021 Van Ronkle in downtown Conway.
“Amateurs” is the story of the Timberly Troupers who have gathered for a cast party after the opening of their musical about undertakers. But the local theatre critic dies before publishing his review. Can the show survive without it? “Amateurs” is sharp, funny and wildly entertaining with a bittersweet ending that touches the heart.
The cast includes Wendy Shirar, Jeff Ward, Trent Reese, Chris Harris, Haley Martin, Elise Edrington, Jake Whisenant, Len Schlientz and Elizabeth Williams. The play is under the direction of Josh Miller.
Admission is $12. Reservations can be made by emailing ConwayLanternTheatre@gmail.com. or by calling 501-733-6220 beginning Monday, Sept. 9.
