45th Anniversary Season with the World Premiere of DEELMAYKER
February 9, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - February 21, 2016 @ 10:00 pm UTC+0
Invisible Theatre (IT) continues its 45th Anniversary Season with the world premiere of DEELMAYKER by Tucson playwright, Warren Bodow. This heartfelt play directed by Susan Claassen and Fred Rodriguez features Jack Neubeck, Kathleen Erickson, Kylie Arnold, Ellie Boyles and Sean Dupont. DEELMAYKER tells the story of Bernie Harris, a 65 year-old charismatic, vivacious wheeler-dealer living in Palm Springs with a wife he’s crazy about. He realizes that as he has been getting older, the world around him has been getting younger. Should this champion “dealmaker” hang it up and count his blessings or can he meet the challenge of staying relevant in a dot.com world?
This production is made possible in part through the generous support of Kristi Keller and Bernie Bauer
