7:30 p.m. The Lantern Theatre. $5-$12.

While the Conway Community Arts Association has been producing theatrical performances since the early '70s, the group has not had a permanent venue to call its own until now. A former storefront space at 1021 Van Ronkle is now home to The Lantern Theatre, a black box venue that seats about 75.

For its debut performance in the new space, CCAA is producing "Same Time, Next Year," a romantic comedy about an adulterous couple who meet up at a cottage in northern California for an annual tryst. The play — which portrays the two over the years of their relationship — opened in 1975, starring Ellen Burstyn and Charles Grodin. A 1978 film version starred Burstyn and Alan Alda.

The production runs through Aug. 7, with 7:30 shows on Friday and Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:30. Reservations are strongly encouraged.
