Preview Night Fundraiser: Betty’s Summer Vacation @ Stage 3 Theatre
Jun 2 @ 7:00 pm

Bettys Summer Vacation

Come join the folks at Sierra NonProfit Services for Preview Night of Betty’s Summer Vacation at Stage 3 Theatre. General Admission is $17 and Seniors are $15.

About the play:
Betty is looking forward to her summer at the ocean. But Trudy, whom she knows only slightly, chatters incessantly; and then there are the other housemates—sexy lout Buck, who’s pathologically on the make with women all the time, and sweet, withdrawn Keith who carries a shovel and a mysterious hatbox and just may be a serial killer. Then the emotionally anarchic landlady, Mrs. Siezmagraff, moves in too; and she invites a crazy derelict to dinner, and, well, the vacation becomes more and more of a strain for poor Betty. Not to mention there seems to be a laugh track coming from the ceiling that no one seems able to shut up. Death, destruction, mayhem—Betty finds it all in her seaside retreat.

All proceeds go to Sierra NonProfit Services, a resource center for local nonprofit organizations in Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties.
