New Century Players presents 'Enchanted April'
New Century Players Community Theatre will present a staged reading of "Enchanted April" this month at Rose Villa Performing Arts Center, 13505 S.E. River Road in Portland. Performances are scheduled for April 13-14 at 7:30 p.m. and April 15 at 2 p.m.
The play is written by Matthew Barber, based on the novel by Elizabeth von Arnim and directed by Elisabeth Goebel.
A synopsis reads: When two frustrated London housewives decide to rent a villa in Italy for a holiday away from their bleak marriages, they recruit two very different English women to share the cost and the experience.
There, among the wisteria blossoms and Mediterranean sunshine, all four bloom again — rediscovering themselves in ways that they could never have expected.
Tickets are $5 at the door or online at NewCenturyPlayers.org. Call 503-367-2620 for more information.
