Last chance to see The Matchmaker is today's matinee

Saturday, November 22, 2014

The last performance of Shorecrest Drama’s fall play, The Matchmaker by Thornton Wilder, is today, Sunday November 23 at 2pm at the Shorecrest Performing Arts Center, 15343 25th Ave NE, Shoreline 98155. 206-393-4280

Tickets are still available online for willcall for $10 plus service fee through Brown Paper Tickets, or at the door for $12.

This show is perfect fare for a Sunday afternoon and the kids are generally as good as the downtown theaters.

A certain old merchant of Yonkers is so rich  that he decides to take a wife. He employs as matchmaker a woman who subsequently becomes involved with two of his menial clerks, assorted young and lovely ladies, and the headwaiter at an expensive restaurant where this swift farce runs headlong into hilarious complications. After everyone gets straightened out romantically and has his heart's desire, the merchant finds himself affianced to the astute matchmaker herself. He who was so shrewd in business is putty in the hands of Dolly Levi. He is fooled by apprentices in a series of hilarious hide and seek scenes, and finally has all his bluster explode in his face.

Judging from the artwork, the set is severely underutilized. Should be at least an R48.
