Fifties-set performance to hit Owego stage

January 31, 2014 by  

On show tomorrow, ‘Till There Was You’ is the story about two Broadway and radio stars, Annie and Frank O’Connor, who find themselves up to their eyeballs in the new concept of live television. This fast-paced show and colorful cast is likely to have the audience roaring in their seats with the comedic situations on stage. Poster printing and flyer printing might have been used to advertise this show to people who live in the region, and no doubt the venue with be bedecked with posters as well.

Set in 1957, the theme of the show is that Frank has taken the couple’s entire life savings to the racetrack and lost it all, causing while their 20-year marriage to come under public scrutiny. Their relationship woes hit the news the day before ‘Till There Was You’ is set to air live and the last thing either of them wants to do is a show together; and yet this is the only option for them.

The stage is set with a colorful cast and the show resembles the classical comedy screwball days of Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant.

The cost to attend is $10 per person. Till There Was You will be performed on Saturday, February 1, at 2:00 pm at the Lakewood Center for the Arts in Owego, Oregon, very close to Wilsonville.
