UACCM Theatre Department Presents "All in the Timing"

The UACCM Theatre Department will present its annual spring theatre production this Thursday April 22 through Sunday, April 25, 2010. The feature this year is “All in the Timing,” by David Ives. The evening performances on April 22, 23, and 24 will begin at 7:30 p.m., and the matinee performance on April 25 will begin at 2:30 p.m. All performances will be held in the UACCM Fine Arts Auditorium.

One of Ives' most popular books of plays, “All in the Timing” originated as an evening of six one-act comedies in 1993, and won him the Outer Critics Circle John Gassner Award for Playwriting. The most well known play from “All in the Timing” is “The Philadelphia,” which follows a man who thinks he is just having a bad day, only to be informed by his friend that he has actually fallen into a metaphysical hole called a Philadelphia where literally everything goes wrong. The taxis don't take you where you want to go, the newsstands don't sell your newspaper and no matter what you order at a restaurant, you end up with a cheese steak.

According to UACCM Theatre Instructor Jim Harris, “The show combines wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun. It is an enjoyable performance for audiences of all ages.” UACCM students and community members make up the cast, which includes several local residents. Tickets to the performances are $8.00 for adults and are free to UACCM students with a valid student ID. The show is not recommended for children under 14 years of age as it contains some adult language. Tickets will be available at the door only on a first-come, first-served basis, and the house will open thirty minutes before curtain.
