Yellow Tree presents ‘Sylvia’

NOW TO JUNE 23 — Yellow Tree Theatre, 320 Fifth Ave. S.E. in Osseo will present “Sylvia” directed by A.R. Gurney.

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 now through June 23, with shows at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays to Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sunday shows.
