Abilene Community Theatre is proud to present the third production of the 2019-20 ACT Remembers season, SYLVIA, written by A. R. Gurney, and directed by Ginger Vinson. Performance dates will be December 6th thru 15th .

Premiering off Broadway in 1995, SYLVIA is the story of a stray dog, the family that adopts her, and the changes brought about by the new family member. Gurney himself wrote that the play is a “timely message of the need to connect in an increasingly alien and impersonal world.”

Ginger Vinson directs SYLVIA for Abilene Community Theatre, and the production features Amanda Keith in the title role of Sylvia, with Darrell Vinson and Elise Pryor-Hardin playing Greg & Kate, Sylvia’s new adoptive owners. The cast also includes Melyssa Rievers, Vanessa Salazar, and Mike Stephens.

SYLVIA will be performed on the Main Stage at Abilene Community Theatre, 809 Barrow Street. Performance dates will be December 6th, 7th, 13th, and 14th at 7:30pm, and December 8th and 15th at 2pm. SYLVIA is produced by special agreement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

This production does include adult themes and strong language.
