Valley Players Return to the stage with Anton in Show Business
Valley Players and the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater present Anton In Show Business by Jane Martin for three performances only on May 9, 10 and 11 at 7pm at the Lincoln Theater in Yountville.
NAPA, CA, April 13, 2017 – Valley Players will then ‘take the show on the road’ to Bay Area Stage in Vallejo for performances on May 13 at 8pm and May 14th at 2pm.
Winner of the 2001 American Theatre Critics Steinberg New Play Award, this madcap comedy follows three actresses across the footlights, down the rabbit hole and into a strangely familiar Wonderland that looks a lot like American theatre! As these women pursue their dream of performing Chekhov in Texas, they’re whisked through a maelstrom of “good ideas” that offer unique solutions to The Three Sisters’ need to have life’s deeper purpose revealed. In the tradition of great backstage comedies, Anton in Show Business is a play within a play within a play that conveys the joys, pains and absurdities of “putting on a play” with biting wit, irony and humor.
