“Love Letters” to Deliver at Warehouse Theatre

UPDATED 2/11/2021 (Date Changes Due to Weather)

by Guy Chapman – Navarro County Gazette

Twenty-one years ago, the Warehouse Living Arts Center put on three special performances of A.R. Gurney’s moving play, Love Letters. Keeping in theme for their 50th Anniversary dedication to revisit popular productions from their past, the WLAC will be putting on three performances of Love Letters. Like the original run, a different set of actors will perform in each show.

Love Letters is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people, Andy and Melissa, who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19th @ 7:30PM
Melissa: Carol Jones
Andy: Jay Jones

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20th @ 7:30PM
Melissa: Danielle Pillans
Andy: Cody Beauchamp

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21st @ 2:30PM
Melissa: Syma Moody
Andy: Terry Williams

Get your tickets online at theWLAC.com, or call the Warehouse Living Arts Center Theatre Box Office at 903.872.5421. Box Office Hours are 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., Monday – Friday located at 119 W. 6th Ave, Corsicana, TX. Due to being at 50 percent capacity seating is limited, so book reservations early.

Notes about the 50 percent Capacity Seating seating section: The WLAC will reserve the best available seat(s) for you at the time of your reservation. Seating arrangement will adhere to State of Texas Guidelines so therefore it is limited. If you have a preferred seating section please call the Box Office and they will accommodate the best they can.

“We are excited to be putting together this production of Love Letters that showcases talent that has graced our stage over the years and to provide something unique to do in town to celebrate Valentine’s Day,” said WLAC Executive Director John Kaiser III. “People are hungry for an escape right now, understandably.”

“In order for us to do this we must ensure the safety of our cast, crew and patrons, and will be mandating masks while in the lobby until seated, where we will be seating according to social distancing guidelines. Temperatures will be taken upon arrival, hand sanitizer will be readily available, and we will be doing paperless ticketing. As much as we want to put on shows, your safety and health are top priority.”
