World Premiere

Annabella In July

By Richard Strand

Annabella in JulyDirected by David Ellenstein
September 7 – October 2, 2022

This World Premiere comedic fantasy transforms a ski resort during the off-season into a strangely magical environment of self-discovery. Playwright Richard Strand (of last season’s smash-hit, Ben Butler) poses questions of identity and perception in this funny and insightful new work. You will find yourself laughing out loud and simultaneously examining the hopes and dreams of your own life experiences. A joyous night at the theatre.
