HILLSBORO — Myers Dinner Theatre in Hillsboro will kick-off its 25th anniversary season with the imaginative theatre piece, Love Letters, opening at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 5 and running through 5 p.m. Feb. 21.
Melt those winter blues with two of MDT’s most well-known and prolific alumni, Michael Moyer,and Ginny Spillman.
A unique and imaginative theatre piece which, in the words of the author, “needs no theatre, lengthy rehearsal, special set or even memorization of lines.” The piece is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny, but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.
This delightful theatrical piece will be directed by Jeremy Littlejohn, MDT artistic director, and will feature former artistic director Moyer of Brownsburg as Andrew and Ginny Pugh Spillman of Indianapolis as Melissa, Feb. 5-14. Preston Dildine of Crawfordsville and Julie Simpkins of Waynetown will take over the roles Feb. 17-21.
Love Letters opens Feb. 5 and runs through Feb. 21, with Wednesday and Saturday matinees seating for dinner at noon and curtain at 1:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday evening performances seat for dinner at 6:30 p.m. with curtain at 8 p.m. and Sunday twilight with seating for dinner at 5 p.m. and curtain at 6:30 p.m.
