What's Next: The play's the thing 

Coming soon to a community theater near you:

Thornton Wilder's Our Town, one of the most famous of American plays, is onstage this weekend (June 18-20) in a dinner theater production at Savannah Christian Church.

Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winner is a sensitive portrait of small-town New England life in the early 20th Century.
Dinner's at 6 p.m. each day, and the show (directed by Wayne Sullivan) starts at 7. Tickets are $10 at the Christian book store The Source.

The church is at 55 Al Henderson Blvd. Call (912) 925-9657 or visit savannahchristian.com.

Here's the rest of the summertime theater schedule:

Based on the novel by Choderlos de Laclos, Christopher Hampton's Les Liaisons Dangereuses is a stage play about psycho-sexual shenanigans amongst the French aristocracy. Jacqueline Gordon directs the dark and somewhat twisted drama June 24-26 at the Indigo Arts Center.

You might remember the 1988 film version, Dangerous Liaisons, directed by Stephen Frears and starring oily Jon Malkovich as the conniving seducer Vicomte de Valmont (the film won three Academy Awards). A year later brought Milos Forman's Valmont. The story also went to the screen in 1999, in a modernized version called Cruel Intentions.

Twisted, one and all.

Coming to Indigo Arts: Kimmi Sampieri (Sordid Lives) will direct the off-Broadway musical The Last Five Years, with Ryan McCurdy and Brittny Hargrove, July 16-24.

July 8-18, Armstrong Atlantic State University's Masquers troupe presents the classic Agatha Christie mystery The Mousetrap.

Vocalist Florence King leads a musical cast in the Savannah Community Theatre's two-act revue, An Evening of Irving Berlin/Broadway Ladies, July 15 and 16 at the Landings Plantation Club.
