Attic Productions’ holiday play, “FrUiTCaKeS,” opens this week at the D. Geraldine Lawson Performing Arts Center and runs Thursdays-Saturdays through December 9.
The holiday comedy is the story of two Southern spinster sisters (who don’t get along but live in the same “divided” house), an estranged old woodworker, a runaway boy and a chicken pox epidemic set against a Christmas backdrop in a small southern town in the 1980s.
Directed by Wyatt Ewell, the play opens nightly at 7:30 p.m. on the Layman Auditorium stage and at 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays during the Nov. 30, Dec. 1, 2, 7, 8 and 9 run.
Adult tickets are $12, with a reduced rate for those 18 years and under and for groups of 10 or more at $10.
For reservations, call the Attic Productions box office, 473-1001. Volunteers are staffing the office on Mondays and Wednesday, 3-7 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Attic Productions, Botetourt County’s community theatre, is located 7490 Roanoke Road, Fincastle.
