Trip to Bountiful

Don’t miss Carson Valley Community Theater’s presentation of “The Trip to Bountiful” at the CVIC Hall on Esmeralda St. in Minden. Performances are Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. for two weekends (Oct. 20-22 and Oct. 27-29).

This play is the story of Carrie Watts who lives her life trapped in a Houston apartment in the 1940s with a controlling daughter-in-law and a hen-pecked son. Her wish before she dies is to revisit “Bountiful,” a small Texas town of her youth which she still calls “home.” The trouble is her son is too concerned for her health to allow her to travel alone and her daughter-in-law insists they don’t have money to spend on bus tickets. The situation prompts “escape” attempts each month which coincide with the arrival of Mrs. Watts’ Social Security check. At last, she makes a successful escape and final trip home. Share her adventure.

Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $13 for age 65+ and students. They may be purchased online at ShowTix4U.com or by calling 292-0939. Discounts are available for groups of 10 people or more. Don’t wait; these performances do sell out.
