Current Production – 686-1282 for Reservations

Good People Opens March 8, 2017

Wichita Community Theatre’s next production is Good People by David Lindsay-Abaire. This gritty story about strong people runs March 8-19, 2017.

“David Lindsay-Abaire pays his respects to his old South Boston neighborhood with this tough and tender play about the insurmountable class divide between those who make it out of this blue-collar Irish neighborhood and those who find themselves left behind. The scrappy characters have tremendous appeal, and the moral dilemma they grapple with—is it strength of character or just a few lucky breaks that determines a person’s fate?—holds special significance in today’s harsh economic climate.” —Variety.

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start.

Performances are at 8 pm. Wednesday through Saturday and 7 pm. on Sunday, March 12 and a 2pm matinee on Sunday, March 19. Tickets are $14 for adults or $12 for military/senior/students (sales tax included). There is a special opening night ticket price of $10 for all on March 8th only. Call for reservations 316-686-1282. Wichita Community Theatre is located at 258 N. Fountain.
