CCT stages 'Rabbit Hole' Oct. 5-9

Friday, September 30, 2011

The Cherokee Community Theater is pleased to kick off its 2011-2012 season with the Pulitzer Prize winning play "Rabbit Hole," by David Lindsay-Abaire.

"Rabbit Hole" is a poignant, honest and unexpectedly witty portrayal of a family attempting to recover in the wake of a sudden shocking loss. In this contemporary drama, Becca (portrayed by Penny Pingrey) and Howie (portrayed by Andrew Linn) Corbett are a successful suburban couple trying to find their way through everyday life after an accident involving their young son, Danny. Coping in different ways, the couple try to work their way back to each other and look towards a future of possibilities.

With Jomi Anderson as Nat, Becca's outspoken yet well-meaning mother, and Tricia Koster as Izzy, her rebellious younger sister, the supporting cast brings to life a vivid, intimate, and often sharply humorous journey of a family searching for healing and hope.

All performances of "Rabbit Hole" will be held at the Cherokee Community Center, with show times as follows :

Wednesday, October 5; Thursday, October 6; Friday, October 7; and Saturday, October 8 - curtain time will be 7:30 p.m.

On Sunday, October 9, the final performance will be a matinee performance at 2 p.m.

Patrons who will be attending the Wednesday Oct. 5 performance are also invited to come to the Community Center early for a wine and cheese reception from 6:15 - 7:15 p.m., prior to the evening performance. The event is sponsored by the Book Vine and the Gathering Pace, and Jimmy Davis will be providing live music during the reception.

Tickets may now be reserved for performances in two ways. You may either: call the ticket line at 225-4440, and in the message clearly state your name, phone number and reservation request information; or now you may reserve your seats online at the website www.cherokeect,org. Once you are on the home page, click "Attend a Show" on the left side of the page. Simply fill out the form on the right side of the reservation page and click "submit," and you will receive a confirmation e-mail after your reservation is received and recorded.

To guarantee your reserved seat, tickets must be paid for (cash, check or season ticket punch) and picked up at least 30 minutes in advance of the scheduled performance. This can be done at the Cherokee Community Center during the following Box Office hours : Sept. 30, Oct. 3 and 4 at 4:30-7 p.m.; Oct. 5, 6, 7, 8 at 6-7 p.m.; and October 9 at 12:30-1:30 p.m.

Tickets will also be available for sale at the door on performance nights, but the shows will start on time and patrons will not be seated once the performance has started.

The CCT Board of Directors thanks everyone for their continuing support they give the CCT as they strive to bring quality entertainment to the Cherokee stage.
