Summer season plays offer waves of laughter

The Heritage Repertory Theatre opens its summer season June 20 with the classic Cole Porter musical, “Anything Goes.”

Romance and madcap adventures abound on board ship, where the passengers include a famous evangelist, young lovers and Public Enemy #13. The hit-filled score features such songs as “You’re the Top,” “It’s Delovely,” and “I Get a Kick out of You,” as well as the title tune.

“Proof,” the comedy-drama that won the 2001 Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize, will be performed July 5, 6, 8, 24, 27 and 30, and Aug. 2 and 3. Other plays to be performed this summer include “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” “Comic Potential” and “Smokey Joe’s Café.”

Performances are staged in Culbreth or Helms theatres. Tickets, at $25 for adults, $14 for students and $21 for senior citizens, are on sale at the Culbreth Theatre box office. Season tickets are also available. The drama department offers free admission for volunteer ushers. Call 924-3376.

In addition, singer Jack Donahue will entertain audiences with songs that celebrate the season June 24-29 in the Helms.
Since 1974, the Heritage Repertory Theatre has been in residence during the summer months as the drama department’s and the University’s professional repertory theatre.
