‘TO AGE WITH GRACE’ 7:30 p.m. – Theatre West is throwing a party and celebrating its 4th Birthday with “To Age with Grace” an evening of dessert, coffee, and two hilarious one-acts about growing older…not so gracefully. The first production of the evening is “Crossing the Bar” by Don Negro. “Crossing the Bar” features two elderly ladies sneaking in a morgue to get one last look at the man they both loved who recently died… or did he? This strange twist brings with it a surprising and uproaringly funny ending. The second play is “I’m Herbert” by Robert Anderson. This one-act features an elderly couple on their front porch, just talking. Of course, they do not know how funny they are. Each has had one or more previous marriages and perhaps a few flings, but they are hazy as to details. In fact, they do not always know which one the other one is. The Evening of “To Age with Grace” is family friendly and a wonderful evening to laugh and celebrate growing older, but never growing up!

‘TO AGE WITH GRACE’ 2 p.m. – Theatre West is throwing a party and celebrating its 4th Birthday with “To Age with Grace” an evening of dessert, coffee, and two hilarious one-acts about growing older…not so gracefully. The first production of the evening is “Crossing the Bar” by Don Negro. “Crossing the Bar” features two elderly ladies sneaking in a morgue to get one last look at the man they both loved who recently died… or did he? This strange twist brings with it a surprising and uproaringly funny ending. The second play is “I’m Herbert” by Robert Anderson. This one-act features an elderly couple on their front porch, just talking. Of course, they do not know how funny they are. Each has had one or more previous marriages and perhaps a few flings, but they are hazy as to details. In fact, they do not always know which one the other one is. The Evening of “To Age with Grace” is family friendly and a wonderful evening to laugh and celebrate growing older, but never growing up! General admission $15, 60 years or older $12, groups (10 or more) $10 per person. Theatre West, 9732 Sidney Road. 912-4087 or sanctuarytheatrewest.com
