‘Cedar Beach’ to run for six dates in August

Jul 20, 2021

MARION — The Marion Art Center has six show dates slated for the August production of “Cedar Beach,” written by Mark Howland and and directed by John Heavey.

The play is about family and a family-owned property. Spanning several generations that covers fifty years, the play attempts to chronicle the history of a vacation home and the vicissitudes of the people who inhabit it.

The cast includes Jack Boesen, Heather Corrigan, Rick DaSilva, Michele Letourneau, Andrew Oliveira, Thom O'Shaughnessy, Susan Salvesen Joanne Sherburne, Jacob Sherburne, Rick Sherburne, Gary Sousa, Susan Sullivan, Karrie Szatek, and Kim Teves. The MAC’s sound and lighting technician is Steve McManus.

This is the art center’s third outdoor live theater event that will take place in Bicentennial Park, Marion, across the street from the art center.

Six show dates are scheduled: Aug. 21 and 22, and Aug. 26 through 29. Thursday, Friday and Saturday productions will begin at 5 p.m., and Sunday matinees will begin at 2 p.m. (Times are subject to change before opening week of the show.) A single rain date will be announced at a later date and, in case of rain, guests may choose another date, donate tickets, or receive a refund only if the performance is cancelled.

Guests should bring their own chairs. Tickets go on sale to art center members ($18) in person or by phone starting July 22. Tickets go on sale online and to nonmembers ($20) starting Thursday, July 29 at marionartcenter.org/events.
