Denim & Dessert Readers Theatre presents Arms and the Man, a romantic comedy by George Bernard Shaw. Performances will be held Friday and Saturday, May 3 and 4, at 7 p.m. at the Presque Isle Community Center. The center is located off Cty. B, up School Loop Road, next to the Presque Isle Library. There is no cost for admission; however, donations are welcome.
Cast as the daring Swiss mercenary who loves chocolate creams is Grant Birmingham. His adversary in love and war, the reckless Sergius, is played by Dick Smith. D&D newcomer Callie Bates is Raina, the proud, witty and equally daring heroine. Sharon and Bob Bridges, Linda Novak and Eric Johnson round out the cast.
Tom Erickson directs, Carol Hartman is technical director and Pam Eschenbauch is in charge of costumes. Larry Gorrilla and able members of D&D are constructing the set. Anyone interested in helping backstage may call the number below.
