“The Grapes of Wrath” will be on the Matuza Main Stage of Limelight Theatre Jan. 22 through Feb. 14.
A classic by John Steinbeck, the play is adapted by Frank Galatic, directed by Dave Alan Thomas and features 26 local actors and musicians.
The play tells the story of the Joads who, living in poverty after losing their farm, pile their few possessions on a battered truck and head west for California, hoping to find work and a better life.
The drama won a 1990 Tony Award and Outer Critics Circle Award.
Holding to the simplicity and directness of the original novel, the play uses the sparest of technical means to convey its timeless message of the persistence and strength of the human spirit as it battles against the adversities of nature and an uncaring society.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday with 2 p.m. matinees on Sunday.
Opening night is Friday and features complimentary pre-show champagne, and a meet-the-cast party following the performance.
Tickets are $26 for adults, $24 for seniors, $20 for military and students and a free ticket for children 12 and younger with a full paid adult ticket. For reservations, call 825-1164 or go to limelight-theatre.org.
