Gala set for Weekend Theater on Saturday

Posted on Fri, Apr 27, 2007 at 2:19 PM

Word we're getting is that Blake Rutherford over at StoneWard is portraying Bush in one of the skits planned for the Weekend Theater's gala on Saturday night, and Blake as Georgie will be a hoot.

Anyway, the gala will feature sketches and music, food from Vermilion Water Grill and tne announcement of the troupe's 2007-08 season. The theater will be honoring longtime supporters BJ and Sid Bray on Saturday as well.

The annual gala begins at 6:30 p.m. at the theater, 7th and Chester streets across from Vino's.

The group will stage a reading of David Hare's political comedy-drama "Stuff Happens," with Blake as Bush and author Grif Stockley reading the part of Dick Cheney. Marilynn Porter will be the narrator.

Weekend Theater artistic director Ralph Hyman will reveal the next year's lineup.

Tickets are $50. Call 374-3761 or visit the theater's website.
