The Riverbend Players – The Dolly Dialogues

THE RIVERBEND PLAYERS will present The Dolly Dialogues based on a novel by Anthony Hope, who wrote the more familiar The Prisoner of Zenda.  Anne Coopersmith has adapted the novel to a play.  Dolly is about the life and times of a British Victorian aristocratic flirt as witnessed by her special friend, Sam Carter. A witty and wonderful look at a time when behavior was very much a minefield of rules.  If you did something outside these strict rules the results could be devastating for your social standing.  Dolly never crosses the line, but she does come close.  Come and see how Dolly navigates the marriage market herself and tries to find a wife for Sam over the years, until finally she arrives at the Pearly Gates and encounters St. Peter.

CAST: Candice Wyatt plays Dolly and Bob LaTorre plays Sam.  They are ably assisted by Frank Johnson as Archie, Lord Michelham, Jane Knapp as Lady Musgrave, Dave Bell as Lord Musgrave, Eunice Massie as the Dowager Lady Michelham and Mrs. Wiggins,  JoAnne Johnson as Sophie the Sufferagette, and Sue Jelineo as Nellie and Phyllis.

Show Run:  August 19, 20, 26 and 27 and Sunday, Aug 21 at 2 pm.  In keeping with the theme of the play, an elegant English tea with delectable goodies will be served at intermission.  Tickets, which include the tea, are $10. The performances will be in the Riverbend Room at NCRD, 36155 Ninth St., Nehalem.
