Independence to play at the Station Theatre

From the press release:

The Celebration Company at the Station Theatre is happy to announce its next production in our 41st season: Independence by Lee Blessing, directed by Deb Richardson, playing November 29 through December 15. The play features actors Nancy Keener, Malia Andrus, Martha Mills, and Jessa Thomas.

In Independence, Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize nominee Lee Blessing tells the story of a mother and her three daughters who return to the small town of Independence, Iowa, out of concern for her mental health. As the women — the fearful mother, the prodigal child, the self-sacrificing daughter, and the rebellious youngest — search for their own versions of independence, they raise questions about growing up, family, and love and come to realize that they must each find their own heaven — or hell — in their own way.

All shows start at 8 p.m., and reservations may be made through our website or by calling (217) 384-4000. Admission is $10 on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays and $15 on Fridays and Saturdays. There is a nightly $1 discount for seniors over 62 and for students with ID. The Station Theatre is located at 223 N. Broadway in Urbana, and free parking is available directly across the street compliments of Sav-a-Lot.
