Mask & Mirror opens season tonight with "The Last Night of Ballyhoo"

SUBMITTED PHOTO - Mask & Mirror returns with a production of 'The Last Night of Ballyhoo.'

At 7:30 p.m. tonight, Mask & Mirror Community Theatre opens its sixth season with a production of the Tony award-winning dramatic comedy “The Last Night of Ballyhoo” by Alfred Uhry, author of "Driving Miss Daisy."

The story takes place in Atlanta in 1939 and tells the story of the Freitag family, elitist German Jews more concerned with Ballyhoo, the social event of the season, than with the war events in Europe. The family gets pulled apart and then mended together with plenty of comedy, romance and revelations as the characters face where they come from and deal with who they really are.

“This is in many ways a timeless story, but it is also a very timely one," said Jayne Furlong, director of the show. "We live in a world that is currently struggling with heightened tension, blind fear, and incredible pain. This story serves as a hopeful example that with knowledge, connection, and understanding, peace is possible, both inside and out.”

After tonight's opening production, performances continue through November 20, 2016, 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; 2 p.m. on Sundays. There will be no performance on Friday, November 18, but a special performance on Thursday, November 10 instead.

Performances take place on Mask & Mirror’s rented stage at Calvin Presbyterian Church, 10446 S.W. Canterbury Lane, Tigard.

Tickets are $15 for adults; $12 for seniors, students, and active military; $10 for groups of ten or more; $7 for children 10 and under; and are available online at www.maskandmirror.com/box-office, or by calling 503- 333-1139, or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
