'Of Mice and Men' Readers Theatre
WHAT: The Sandy Actors Theatre presents John Steinbeck's classic story of two itinerant farmhands: Lennie, a gentle giant with the mind of a child, and George, a drifting dreamer who attempts to care for him. A promiscuous woman enters and tragedy occurs, forcing George to make an agonizing choice about how to best 'protect' his friend. For Readers Theater, the actors perform the play on stage with scripts in hand and without costumes or props, the emphasis being on the words of the play (contains strong language).
WHEN: 7 p.m., Monday, Feb. 20.

COST: Tickets are $8. No reservations.
