Here's more about The Last Romance:
The Last Romance is an uncommonly sensitive portrayal of love's enduring spark across the ages. The play ignited the hearts of the Windham Theatre Guild's playreading committee, who decided it was a perfect play to put on in the cold month of February. It's very funny and under the lovable characters and touching story, it's also a meditation on the different faces of love. Plus there's incredible singing!"
In DiPietro's inimitable hands, the story of love's everyday grandeur is told through the treasury of Italian opera. . . and the yipping of little dogs. After a lifetime of ups and downs, Italian-American siblings Rose and Ralph expect to live out the rest of their lives together in Hoboken, New Jersey. That is, until a woman named Carol, "like the song," appears walking her dog in the dog park. Carol, who is from the other side of town, captures Ralph's heart. As he tries to capture hers, he uses all his powers of persuasion, including the singing talent that almost landed him a job with the Metropolitan Opera. The play celebrates the human heart's capacity to love, but also asks what happens when Cupid's arrows rock the boat of our settled lives and obligations.
Michael Young returns to direct his second show for the Guild. The first show he directed was the highly acclaimed Second Samuel. Wayne Trembly of Mansfield plays Ralph, Raeleen D’Agostinio from Wallingford plays Rose, Pat Covino from Vernon is Carol, and professional tenor Vittorio DiCarlo is the Young Man.
The Thursday, February 23rd performance is being sponsored by Walmart of North Windham. All tickets bought at the door on February 23rd are only $12. This special offer does NOT apply to tickets reserved in advance.
