Belfast Maskers Present World Premiere of “Dance Again”
May 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$12 – $18
BELFAST, MAINE – The Belfast Maskers are proud to present the world premiere of local writer Tucker Atwood’s new play, “Dance Again”. Equal parts farce, satire, and drama, “Dance Again” will satisfy theater goers by tickling funny bones, pulling heartstrings, and provoking thought. The play opens May 5th, at the Basil Burwell Community Theater, 17 Court Street in Belfast, with a special $10 Preview Night Performance. In a war-torn borderland, Billy (Scott Taylor) and Helen (Robyn Tarantino) have created a sanctuary for themselves deep in the woods. They live in a cozy cabin, insulated from the violence, struggles, and grief of the seemingly endless conflict—or so they thought. A devastating snowstorm brings a group of soldiers, lost and freezing, to their door. The sympathetic couple lets them in to share their warmth, their company, and their supper. Soon there is another knock on the door. Two more desperate soldiers seek shelter from the storm—but they’re from one of the other sides. While they attempt to keep the soldiers from realizing they are enemies, it becomes clear that this unassuming couple has more involvement with the war than expected. Spirits flow, bonds are formed, tempers flare, and old wounds are brought to the surface. If everyone survives dinner, what will the future bring for them all? Find out May 5-15 in the Basil Burwell Community Theater. Following the May 5th Preview, the run continues for two weekends, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 PM with Sunday Matinees at 2 PM. General admission tickets are $18, discounted to $12 for students and seniors. Due to the language and themes, parental guidance is recommended for children. A group rate is available when ordered online. There will be a Talk Back with the playwright and cast following the first Sunday Matinee on May 8th, when cast and crew answer questions from the audience. Tickets are available online at BelfastMaskers.com or at the theater, one hour before show time.
