A Touching and Deliciously Entertaining Comedy 

By James Kirkwood
On Stage September 1 - 24, 2016

Garland Civic Theatre is proud to present LEGENDS! - a heartwarming and hilarious comedic play written by James Kirkwood and directed by Josh Hensley.

Wheeler-dealer producer Martin Klemmer has uncovered a terrific new script for the Broadway stage, “Star Wars The Musical!”  But his calls are not being returned by any of the powerful Broadway magnates.  Martin needs names - big names like film legends Sylvia Glenn and Leatrice Monsee for the leads.  If Martin can sign them he can get the money to produce the show. Unfortunately, they hate each other!  Will Martin be able to resolve this titanic dilemma in this touching and deliciously entertaining comedy?

The talented cast features Laura C. Cutler and Sue Goodner as the feuding Sylvia and Leatrice, Thomas McKee as Martin Klemmer, Ray-Nita Powell as Aretha Thomas, and Tucker Souther.

Performances are Thursday, September 1, 2016 through Saturday, September 24, 2016 in the small theatre at the Granville Arts Center, 300 North Fifth Street, Garland, Texas.  Performances will be a Thursday night Preview (September 1) at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday Matinees (September 11 and 18) at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are available now! Call the Arts Center Box Office at 972-205-2790 for tickets or order online at www.garlandartsboxoffice.com.  All tickets (except for Thursday Preview September 1st) are $22 including the service few.  The Thursday night Preview performance is $12.  There are discounts available for KERA members and groups of 10 or more. Season sponsors include the Garland Cultural Arts Commission.
