Art Opens March 31st

Amana, IA - Beginning this Thursday and running through April 17th, the Old Creamery Theatre will present its production of Yazmina Reza's Art. Translated by Christopher Hampton and directed by Tom Milligan, the cast consists of Sean McCall, Tim Budd, and Patrick Du Laney.

The plot revolves around three old friends and a controversial painting. Serge (played by Budd) decides to spend a large sum of money on a modernist painting, which is essentially a blank white canvas. Marc (played by Du Laney) thinks this is foolish and tells him so, with growing frustration and viciousness. Yvan (played by McCall), stuck in the middle, tries desperately to keep this feud from souring their friendship.

Art is a comedy with mature themes. Old Creamery rates it Theatre R. Tickets are $27 for adults and $17.50 for students. Show times are 3 p.m. Thursdays and Sundays and 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets can be purchase by calling the box office at 800-35-AMANA or visiting the website.

Throughout the run of the play, Old Creamery will display paintings, drawings, fiber arts and sculptures from local artists.
