Yellow Tree presents ‘Sylvia’
MAY 31 TO JUNE 23 — Yellow Tree Theatre, 320 Fifth Ave. S.E. in Osseo will present “Sylvia” directed by A.R. Gurney. This sweet and loony play chronicles the story of middle-aged couple, Greg and Kate, who have just settled down in their new cozy Manhattan apartment after twenty years of child-rearing in the suburbs. When Greg, bored and on the verge of a mid-life crisis, brings home his frisky four-legged new friend, Sylvia, the zany action begins. With her soulful brown eyes and adventurous spirit, Sylvia quickly becomes a bone of contention between husband and wife. Directed by Anne Byrd. Starring: Mary Fox, Sean Byrd, Katie Wodele and Tristan Tifft. Performances run May 31 through June 23, with shows at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays to Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sunday shows. Tickets are $17 for Wednesdays and Thursdays, $23 for Fridays and Saturdays and $20 for Sundays. Students, seniors 60 and up and groups of 10 or more receive $3 off these prices.
