Springville Players present “Of Mice and Men,” a theatrical adaptation of the American classic by acclaimed author John Steinbeck, opening March 12.
Set in California during the Great Depression, it is the heartbreaking tale of two unlikely friends, who, as migrant farm hands, travel in search of work, hoping one day to save enough money for a little place of their own.
Directed by Ed Heary, the production stars Rick Manzone as George, DJ Livingston as Lennie, Tom Durham as Candy, Rick Sweet as Slim, Keith Cordaro as Carlson, Mike Sharrer as Whit, Franklyn Jones as Crooks, Cassie Klahn as Curley’s Wife, Christian Pfarner as Curley, and Timothy Musial as The Boss.
Performances run March 12, 13, 14 and 21 at 8 p.m., and Sundays, March 15 and 22 at 2 p.m. at Springville Center for the Arts’ Carol Mongerson Theater, 37 N Buffalo Street, in Springville.
Opening Night, March 12, is “Pay What You Can With a Can,” where patrons can pay any amount at the door with a non-perishable item to benefit food pantries in the Springville area.
The show is rated PG-13 for strong language. Tickets are $10 seniors and students, and $12 general admission. Group rates are also available.
