Daily Buzz | Burlington Players Announce Cast and Showtimes for Season Opening Play
And, no school in Burlington tomorrow
Good Morning, Burlington!
I hope the first day of school was lovely for all. Only one more day, and then we’ll have a four-day weekend and a short week!
Today, I wanted to share with you a wonderful cultural event that will be taking place throughout the month of September.
The Burlington Players are proud to present their 2023-2024 season opener, Ripcord, by David Lindsay-Abaire!
For 4 years, irritable and sarcastic Abby Binder has kept a room to herself at the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, through sheer force of her rude personality. When bubbly, bright, and unbearably cheerful Marilyn Dunne is placed in her room, Abby tries her usual tricks, but fails to scare her new roommate away. As this odd couple embarks upon increasingly emotionally and physically dangerous tricks in order to break each other, secrets are revealed, lives are jeopardized, and peach cobbler is enjoyed.
The play is directed by Russell Greene, stage managed by Emily Lambert, and stars Pamela Schweppe, Dayle Ballentine, Kerrylynne Abramov, Justin Linscott, Michael Mazzone, and Lee Pallotta. Shows will take place at The Park Playhouse at 1 Edgemere Ave on September 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, and 23 at 8pm, with matinee performances on September 10 and 17 at 2pm.
