‘Call Me Madam’ coming to CVIC Hall
February 27, 2014
Carson Valley Community Theatre will present Irving Berlin's musical comedy "Call Me Madam" over two weekends, March 21-23 and March 28-30, at the CVIC Hall in Minden. Friday and Saturday evening shows begin at 7:30 p.m. and are followed by matinees at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
The story is a satire on politics and foreign affairs that parodies America's lending of money to other countries. The show centers on Sally Adams, a well-meaning but ill-informed socialite widow who is appointed United States ambassador to a small fictional European country.
Rehearsals are under way, with Adams played by Carla Wilson and Lichtenburg's prime minister played by Jim Dezerga. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.showtix4U.com or at the CVCT box office, at 1572 Highway 395, between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday or at the door. Adult admission is $18, and admission for seniors and students is $16. Tickets for groups of 10 or more can be purchased at a discount price of $2 off regular price at the box office. Dinner and show tickets are available for $52 at Minden Food Co. for the Friday and Saturday performances, and a Sunday champagne brunch before the matinee is available at Minden Meat and Deli for $40.
