A Christmas Carol

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society will perform “A Christmas Carol” on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and on Sundays at 2 p.m. from Friday, Nov. 30 through Sunday, Dec. 16 at Theater Off the Square, 114 N. Denton in Weatherford.

Written by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin, Jr. and produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., the ladies portray a dizzying array of characters from the Dickensian favorite (and a few which aren't).

Tickets are $12 or $10 for students and seniors. Matinee tickets on Sundays are $9. To reserve tickets call 817-341-8687 or visit https://buy.ticketstothecity.com. Cash or checks only are accepted at the box office.

Sun, 09/23/2012 - 2:00pm

Theatre Off The Square will show a production of “Red, White, and Tuna” at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturdays, with 2 p.m. matinees on Sunday from Friday, Sept. 7 to Sunday, Sept. 23 at 114 N. Denton in Weatherford. Tickets are available 45 minutes prior to curtain, but reservations are strongly recommended. Call 817-341-8687 to make a reservation or if you have questions.

The show was written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard, and produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Ltd. The third installment in the Tuna series takes the audience through another satirical ride into the hearts and minds of the polyester-clad citizens of Texas' third smallest town. Along with Tuna's perennial favorites, some new Tuna denizens burst into the Fourth of July Tuna High School Class Reunion. This sets the stage for a show full of fireworks and fun from the land where the Lion's Club is too liberal, and Patsy Cline never dies. Greater Tuna was one of TOTS’ best selling shows; so don’t miss this opportunity to see the sequel. Contains Adult language.

Written by Jones Hope Wooten | Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service. The action in this rollicking Southern comedy takes place in SPA-DEE-DAH!, the abandoned church-turned day spa where this group of friends gathers every Friday afternoon. After losing a dear friend, the women realize time is precious, and if they’re going to change their lives and achieve their dreams, they have to get on it now. By the time the women rally together to overcome these obstacles and launch their new improved lives, you’ve got a side-splitting joyful comedy that will make you laugh out loud. Directed by Wally Jones.
