Former sweethearts cross paths 30 years later in Elsinore's romantic comedy 'Shooting Star'
The Elsinore Theatre Ensemble presents Steven Dietz's "Shooting Star" on Sept. 29 to Oct. 15.
Performances will be 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. Sundays at First United Methodist Church, 216 E. Highland Ave. in downtown Elgin.
When a snowstorm causes all flights at a regional airport to be canceled, Reed McAllister (played by Jamie Ewing) and Elena Carson (Lori Rohr) are literally stuck -- and left to ponder their past, present and future.
What happens when this former couple has a random chance meeting? Will the changes these two very different people have undergone since their paths parted 30 years ago prevent them from reconnecting?
With a touching and funny script by one of America's most popular playwrights, "Shooting Star" is a play about missed flights and second chances, soon to be the major motion picture "What Happens Later" starring Meg Ryan and David Duchovny.
General admission tickets are $22 or $18 for seniors, students or members of the military. Online fees apply. Tickets are available via eeshootingstar.eventbrite.com.
A portion of the funding for this production is provided by the Elgin Cultural Arts Commission.
