Catch a Star Theatrical Players is pleased to present Roses In December by Victor Cahn.

The title of this nostalgic and lovely play refers to cherished memories of life and love recalled in one’s later years. Whether or not those memories are accurate, or if it’s advisable to stir up those old feelings, is another matter altogether.

Such is the dilemma facing Carolyn Meyers, played by Laura Negin. An ambitious college student, Carolyn tries to entice a famous alumnus back for a weekend event. At first, reclusive author Joel Gordon (played by Richard Meinhold) fails to respond to her letters. Later, he graciously declines.

Only when the fact that Joel knows Carolyn’s parents is revealed does the drama really begin. As the young woman continues to delve into Joel and her parents’ past, the author gradually gives in to her questions about the true nature of the relationship between himself and Carolyn’s mother.

Cahn’s play is told through a series of letters. The correspondence is witty and wry, a refreshing touch in this age of emails and instant messages.

Performances are Saturdays, September 19 and 26 at 7:30 pm and Sundays the 20,and 27 at 3:00 pm. General admission is $12. On Opening Night, September 18, admission is $24 which includes a special after-party where the audience will be served light refreshments and cocktails while interacting with the actors. All performances are held at the Beaumont Womens’ Community Center. For information and ticket purchase, please call 951-315-4253 or visit www.castplayers.org

The incredible story of the Apostle Paul explodes onto the LifeHouse Theater stage in this world-premiere musical. From his dramatic conversion on the road to Damascus to his trials and travels spreading the Gospel of Christ, the exciting life of Paul is recounted in this biblical biography.

Performances begin Saturday, August 22, 2015 at 7:30 PM and will continue on weekends through September 27, 2015. Performances are Fridays at 7:30 PM, Saturdays at 2:15 PM and 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2:15 PM.

This original musical follows the murderous Saul of Tarsus, his amazing encounter with God, and his dramatic conversion to Paul the Apostle.

Paul: The Road To Damascus is written by Mark Harbison and directed by Nathan Smith. Joining Smith in staging this production is music director Chris Hallenbeck, choreographer Bethanne Prince, set designer Tim Mahoney and costumer Machir Lakofka.

“We are honored to be presenting this biblical epic,” observes LifeHouse founder and president Wayne Scott. “A biography of Paul has been requested by more of our guests than any other story. Our new musical is inspirationally uplifting as we witness God’s hand in this remarkable man’s life.”

Paul: The Road To Damascus features Taylor A. Joseph as Paul, Jacob Gomez as Silas, Aaron Yanez as Stephen, Michael Burns as Barnabas and Tai Dooley as Abigail. The musical also features David Hurley as Gamaliel, Duane Crother as Peter, David Medina as Caiaphas, Nick Dilberto as James, Sarah Pearce as Priscilla, Jason Chan as Samuel, Paul Zanone as Elymas and Dylan Bishop as Joseph.

The theater is located at 1135 N. Church St. in Redlands, next to the Redlands Christian School. Free parking is available in back of the theater.
