IT'S THE SECOND TO LAST!
A MESSAGE FROM JOHN CAIN—
To give you an update, my annual holiday reading has been rescheduled for Wednesday, March 7, 2018. Same reading as was planned for November 14, only this rescheduled version will feature something extra special!
I am pleased to announce that Jim West, who has performed his puppet shows at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts for the past 25 years, will be presenting the reading with me! It will be our first time together on any stage since 1975 when we were in college. I will be reading all the Truman Capote parts and Jim will be reading everybody else. He is especially excited to get to play an intoxicated Slim Keith!
If for any reason you are unable to attend on March 7 and would like a refund, just let us know—we will be happy to process your request. (If, on the other hand, you are unable to attend but would like us to keep your reservation as a contribution to our mission, we will be happy to provide you with a letter for your tax records.)
This year's holiday reading chronicles the disastrous Christmas of 1975, the year Truman Capote celebrated in solitude, defiantly watching as his legendary swans swam away after the publication of a bombshell story, in which he utterly betrayed the women who had trusted and idolized him for decades.
Enjoy a complimentary glass of wine in the gallery beginning at 11am. Lunch at noon with the reading to follow.
South Shore Arts member table of ten $450
Non-member table of ten $500
South Shore Arts member individual ticket $45
Non-member individual ticket $50
Make your reservations today! Reservations close February 28, 2018. Call 219/836-1839, ext. 103
