The stage is set, actors ready, and lights up at Warner Town Hall, where live performances once again provide entertainment for the greater Sunapee-Kearsarge region community.

The Sunapee Kearsarge Intercommunity Theatre (SKIT), partnering with Center for the Arts (CFA), will be performing “Turning Toward the Sun,” a book and play written by Ceil Warren of New York in its premier production. This romance-comedy takes place in a small New England village (not unlike our own) where life moves slowly, gossip travels fast, and it is simply impossible to keep deep, dark secrets hidden forever. 

Arthur, our lead character, harbored a deep, dark secret … for the past 40 years. As each decade passed, Arthur was lulled further and further down the proverbial rabbit hole. “If I never speak of it, no one will know.”  But, as fate would have it, his friends are a lot better at uncovering deep, dark secrets than he was at keeping them hidden.

The play will be performed at Warner Town Hall, 5 East Main Street, Warner, on Friday and Saturday, November 5 and 6, at 7:30 PM, and on Sunday, November 7 at 2 PM; and on Friday and Saturday, November 12 and 13, at 7:30 PM, and on Sunday, November 14 at 2 PM. 

Tickets can be purchased at Tatewell Gallery and Morgan Hill Bookstore in New London, at MainStreet BookEnds in Warner, or at the door.  Ticket prices are $18 general admission, $15 members of SKIT or CFA, and $10 for students.

Let’s open our darkened stages, smile, laugh, and enjoy live theater once again!
