TMP’s Reader’s Theater

Silver Alert

By Harriette Tax with the assistance of Bob Logan

Director: Paula Keenan

7:00 – 8:30pm

Worried about her driving and aging, Louise’s sons begin to curtail her driving and eventually take away her car keys. In retaliation, with a third set of keys, she takes her car on a wild journey across country to Las Vegas.

Reader’s Theater is a style of theater that involves no costumes, props, or memorization of lines. You will enjoy some new faces during this production that gives new volunteers and long-standing community theater lovers a chance to shine.
