The Southborough Players have come a long way. Last spring the 40-year-old community theater group almost went dark due to lack of support. This weekend they’ll present their latest show, the musical revue “Closer Than Ever.”
The Southborough Players describe the show like this:
“Closer Than Ever” is a musical revue of 20-plus songs by Richard Maltby Jr. and David Shire. Each song is a vignette into a character’s life, universal moments and themes all of us can relate to. It is like opening a box of tucked away mementoes. Each one tugs at your heartstrings as you relive the events rooted in the souvenirs. All we ever have is the present and our memories as we travel on our journey through life.
Performances will be held at Trottier Middle School. The cast includes Bill Condon of Shrewsbury, Michelle Margulies of Natick, Sheryl Altman of Southborough, Chris Harris of Shrewsbury, Ray Gaspari of Worcester, Donna Wresinski of Framingham, Amy Herrera of Hopkinton and Diane Tutin of Natick.
Tickets are $15 ($12 for seniors and students) and can be purchased at the door or online in advance. Show times are Friday and Saturday at 8:00 pm and Sunday at 2:00 pm.
