Local Theatre Production To Support Haiti Relief

A production of The Dining Room by A.R. Gurney, directed by Kathleen Gilpatrick, is scheduled for several shows next week at the Backdoor Playhouse. There will be performances on May 13th, 14th and 15th at 7:30 pm, plus a two o'clock matinee on Saturday, May 15th. The ticket price is $ 15.00 per person, and reservations can be made by calling the Cookeville Performing Arts Center box office at 528-1313. Tickets will also be available at the door. Gilpatrick says that proceeds from the show will benefit Rebuild Haiti, a local fundraising effort to aid in the rebuilding of that country, which was devastated by an earthquake earlier this year.
