Of Mice and Men: $5 Preview Night @Theatre Arlington

Where else can you see live theater for five bucks? Join us for the dress rehearsal tonight! Be sure to check in with the event host before the play or at intermission!

Thursday evening prior to the Opening Friday of some shows, patrons may watch the dress rehearsal of the show for $5 on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are only sold at the door, so arrive early or send a friend with CASH.Box office opens at 6:30. Seating usually about 7, play starts at 7:30.

The American Classic by John Steinbeck: Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the “fat of the land,” have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It’s Lennie’s obsessions with things soft and cuddly, that have made George cautious about who the gentle giant, with his brute strength, associates with. His promise to allow Lennie to “tend to the rabbits” on their future land keeps Lennie calm, amidst distractions, as the overgrown child needs constant reassurance. But when a ranch boss’ promiscuous wife is found dead in the barn with a broken neck, it’s obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. George, now worried about his own safety, knows exactly where Lennie has gone to hide, and he meets him there. Realizing they can’t run away anymore, George is faced with a moral question: how should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands.

This show is not meant for those under fourteen.

    Angela (and anyone else who's new), just look for a gaggle of people, and listen for someone asking (or ask yourself), "Does anyone know where the Meetup group is?" Somebody will speak up and say, "Here we are!"
