Willapa Players to present “Barrel Full of Pennies”

The Willapa Players latest production is “A Barrel Full of Pennies,” which opens this weekend.

This romp, written by John Patrick and directed by Rebekah Cowell, tells the tale of the father of a lovable and zany family. Adonis Samaritan (played with aplomb by Russ Wiitala) has a soft heart and can’t resist taking in strays — both animals and people. In fact, this show has more animals in it than people. There are only six human actors — but they share the stage with six live dogs and a live duck.

The production opens at 7:30 Friday at the Hannan Playhouse on Eighth Street in Raymond. Additional evening performances are scheduled for Saturday and Friday, June 28 and Saturday, June 29 with two matinees — Sunday, June 23, and Sunday, June 30.

Tickets are $10 for general public and $8 for seniors (65 and older) and students (through college) and are available at South Bend Pharmacy, Everyone’s Video and More and at the door.


Navy Band Northwest to wrap up S.A.L. season

Sunday Afternoon Live will present the final concert of the series, free of charge, to wind up the 2012-2013 10th anniversary season. The military band has become a popular tradition to end the season.

Admittance will be honored to those holding season tickets. The concert is free, but attendees must have a complimentary ticket, obtainable at the ticket outlets or the ticket desk in the theater lobby.
