The following is a release from the Ocean Pines Players:
The Ocean Pines Players will stage the Ocean City debut of the poignant play, “Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks” in October, with five local performances before going on the road for the theater company’s first production in Pocomoke.
In “Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks,” by American playwright Richard Alfieri, Victoria Cook and Thom Harris play Lily Harrison, a self-described “old biddy” who lives alone, and Michael Minetti, her dance instructor who was forced to leave his life as a chorus boy on Broadway behind. The witty dialogue supports the moving relationship that develops between the two.
“Six Dance Lessons” will be performed Oct. 4, 5, and 7 at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church on 103rd Street in Ocean City at 7 p.m.; Oct. 6 at St. Peter’s for a 2:30 p.m. matinee; and, in a first for OPP, a performance at the historic Mar-VA Theater in Pocomoke on Oct. 13 at 2:30 p.m.
