SRJC Theatre Arts Department Productions 2014-2015 - #1 Prelude to a Kiss
The SRJC Theatre Arts Department's 2014-2015 season Will open in October with Prelude to a Kiss, byCraig Lucas, directed by John Shillington.
"Once upon a time in the land of Manhattan a straight-laced guy named Peter meets a beautiful insomniac named Rita and they fall instantly in love. But when an elderly stranger kisses the bride at their wedding, it sparks a supernatural soul-switch that sends this quirky "fairy tale for adults" spinning. Funny, yet poignant, Prelude to a Kiss is a heartfelt comment on aging, fate, and the fragility of love in the face of sudden crisis."
Recommended for age 14 and above. Contains strong language and adult topics.
The play will run from October 3 through October 12, with both matinee and evening performances. For show times, additional detail and information on other plays in the 2014-2015 season, see the Theatre Arts Department website's Current Season page (Scroll down the page to see show times and other play information.) or view this Calendar of performances.
