Wimberley Players presents The Trip to Bountiful
The Wimberley Players present this Horton Foote classic

July 25th thru August 10th, 2003
The Greenhouse Theatre
Wimberley, Texas

The Trip to Bountiful, the widely acclaimed drama by Pulitzer Prize winner and native Texan Horton Foote, is the third production in the Wimberley Players' highly successful season at the Greenhouse Theatre in Woodcreek. Directed by Sharon Campbell and produced by Judith Laird, with Jana White as Assistant Director, the show opens Friday evening, July 25, for a three weekend run through August 10. Friday and Saturday evening performances are at 8:00 pm, with Sunday matinees July 27, August 3, and August 10 at 2:30 pm.

Called a "theatre classic" by New York reviewers, "Bountiful" tells of an aging widow, Carrie Watts, who lives with her son and daughter-in-law, but yearns to return to her old home in Bountiful, Texas, where she is sure she will regain her strength, her independence, and her peace of mind. The 1985 movie version, starring Geraldine Page as Mrs. Watts, won two Academy Award nomination s. Moving to the Broadway stage, the play was proclaimed "the rarest of theatre experiences". This poignant drama just recently found its way back to Texas at the Houston Alley Theatre, and now it's coming to the Greenhouse!

Director Campbell is justifiably proud of her cast that includes Greenhouse veterans Diane Hruska (Mrs. Watts), Carla Daws (Jessie Mae Watts), Rob Sandefur (Sheriff), John Daws (Ticket Man), plus talented newcomers Steve Uzzell (Ludie Watts), Shannon Barrington (Thelma), and Bill Hamilton (Ticket Man).
Master playwright Horton Foote was born in Wharton, Texas in 1916, and is considered one of America's most respected writers for stage and screen. Biographer Charles Watson comments on the deep compassion Foote shows for his characters, many of whom are drawn from his own experiences growing up in a small Texas town in the early part of the 20th century. This kindness and understanding of human hopes and frailties is nowhere better exemplified than in his masterful The Trip to Bountiful.

Reservations for this heartwarming drama can be made at any time with Visa/MasterCard by calling (512) 847-0575, or you can pick up your $12 tickets at the Box Office located in the Ozona Motor Bank Lobby and pay with cash, check, or credit card. The Box Office opens July 21. Hours are Monday-Friday, 1-5 pm.
