      by Geoffry Nauffts

      Adam and Luke are in a happy, committed relationship. They have been living together for years, despite some minor differences: Luke is a Christian and Adam is very much not. This leads to some debates, as well as to Luke keeping his relationship with Adam a secret from his family. Everything is running somewhat smoothly, until a sudden accident forces Adam to turn to Luke’s family for support. This touching and funny play questions the limits of love and faith.

      5:15 PM The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin (Click here to buy tickets online)

      QFest veteran director Jennifer Kroot (“To Be Takei”) returns with this intimate portrait of American gay writer Armistead Maupin, best known for his ground-breaking “Tales of the City.” This remarkable doc examines the life and work of one of the world’s most beloved storytellers, following his evolution from a conservative son of the Old South into a gay-rights pioneer whose novels have inspired millions to claim their own truth. It moves nimbly between playful and poignant and laugh-out-loud funny. With help from his friends (including Neil Gaiman, Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis, Sir Ian McKellen, and Amy Tan), Maupin offers a disarmingly frank look at the path that took him from the jungles of Vietnam to the bathhouses of ’70s San Francisco to the front lines of the American culture war. The world premiere of the film was held at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival.

      7:30 PM Handsome Devil (Click here to buy tickets online)

      This inventive feature is about a sexually confused teenage aspiring special-effects makeup artist who retreats into a fantasy world to deal with his sense of isolation. Although, the teen finds support in his best friend and talking pet hamster, he is haunted by horrifying visions of the consequences of revealing his homosexuality.

    1. Play “Rhinosceros” — Webster U. Theatre
      2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

      Rhinosceros

      by Eugene Ionesco

      All is quiet in small town in France. Friends meet in the town square for coffee and lively discussion. It is normal. This is all disrupted by a rhinoceros barreling through the town. Many believe it never happened, but the local drunk Berenger insists it was real. Slowly, he witnesses his fellow townspeople turning into rhinos and wreaking havoc. Rhinoceros is full of insight on the human condition with little pieces of humor mixed in, a must-see classic of the Absurdist movement.

      For tickets to all Conservatory of Theatre Arts productions Call (314) 968-7128

      There will be an optional Dinner following the play at a restaurant TBA nearby. 

      Open Seating. To help insure that we can locate everyone attending and sit together, click here to RSVP Michael T. at michael@primetimersstl.org or call him at the phone number in the member directory.

As they confront the ongoing contradictions of society, their stories intertwine with notable historic figures in a sweeping musical portrait of an indelible era.

      A few adjustments are planned for this year’s annual pool party:

      1. The pool opens at 3pm, not 5pm
      2. The live music by Jerry Rabushka and his band starts at 4pm not 5pm
      3. Food service starts at 5pm.

      So come early and enjoy the time to meet new members.

      Ed will provide brats and burgers, soft drinks and coffee. You bring a side dish.  Alcohol is BYOB. Since this event may have a very large turnout, bring a folding chair if you have one.

      By Thursday, August 3, click here to email Ed V. to RSVP at pompomkuku@yahoo.com or call his number listed in the member roster.  Give your FULL name, the names of any guests, and the side dish, appetizer or dessert you will bring. 

      Parking is available on the street along the entire block.

      9:00 am – 10:00 am

      99 years in the making for this area.   See it on Monday August 21st with  Prime Timers: The Great American eclipse.   If you would like to go and see approximate 2 minutes 32 seconds of totality of the Great American eclipse join us.  The eclipse starts at 11:50 and ends at 2:32 totality is at 1:17 p.m.  Hawn State Park is the place to go.  They will have prepared a tent for shade and there will be an additional cooling area if anybody needs to cool off; porta potties will be available.   You will need to bring water, a hat, sunblock and a folding chair, we don’t think lounge chairs, they may take up too much room.  Depending on where you come from it should take you about 50 minutes to get there if you’re coming from around Barnes Hospital. (Click here for a link to the park event.)

      Go south on interstate 55 to exit 150 then turned right and go west on hwy 32 for 11 miles.  Turn left  on Highway 144  to Hawn State Park  about 1.9 miles and turn left into the park.  The address is 12096 Park Drive Ste Genevieve Mo 63670.

      Because we believe it may be crowded in all locations, we think you may want to arrive no later then 9 to 9:30. Parking is limited; the earlier you arrive the better chance you have of finding good parking.  The park has prepared a field for viewing and parking is at a flat field.  More information will be sent later along with a map. 

      Contact information is Edward (Ed) Eakins 573 587-3510 email is edeak8@aol.com.

      RSVP no later than 8-18-17 to edeak8@aol.com.  also please send your phone number in case he needs to call everyone at the last minute for any changes.  Ed will have a minimum number of glasses for viewing the eclipse available (approximately 20).  He will give them out for free.  First come first serve on the glasses.

      I will email those who RSVP or call if there are any changes in location or possible cancellation due to weather. 

      After the eclipse, some of us might like to have a late lunch or early dinner in the Festus area (20 or 30 minutes away).  You also can bring your own food to snack while you are at the park if you would like. In this case we suggest you bring a cooler with plenty of ice.

      2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

      [title of show]

      Music and Lyrics by Jeff Bowen

      Jeff and Hunter, two self-confessed nobodies in New York, make a pact: They will write an original musical and submit it to a festival. The only catch? The deadline is in three weeks! They gather their friends, Susan and Heidi, and their trusted accompanist and set off. With the team assembled, Jeff and Hunter hit another roadblock– what should they write about? Jeff and Hunter decide to follow the old saying, “write what you know,” and set off on a unique musical adventure: writing a musical about writing a musical. As the deadline looms, insecurities creep in and jealousies flare. Will the team succeed with their musical? Could it even win a Tony?! Frequently hilarious, occasionally heartbreaking, and thoroughly inspiring, [title of show] is a love story celebrating individuality and creativity.

      As You Like It

      By William Shakespeare

      When your life is at risk and you flee court to find refuge in the woods, it’s good to have a clown along. Stepping into the magical Forest of Arden with the philosophical fool Touchstone and her cousin Celia, Rosalind disguises herself as a young man and takes a walk into self-discovery. In this brave new world, she finds other court exiles – and the man she loves! Falling in love and learning who you are by acting the part are at the heart of this charming production in which romantic playfulness builds to a woodland wedding extravaganza.

    1. Play “Lysistrata” — Webster U. Theatre
      2:00 pm – 4:30 pm

      How do you end a war that seems never ending? Aristophanes’ famous play, Lysistrata, takes on this question as it centers on the lives of the soldiers’ wives toward the end of the Peloponnesian War. One woman, Lysistrata, under the impression that a man’s libido is ultimately his driving force in life, comes up with an interesting peace solution: to deny their husbands and lovers sexual relations until they can settle on a peace agreement that will end the war. However, Lysistrata’s strategy effectively creates even more conflict than before as the sexes begin to feud with each other. Aristophanes’ play is both comic, poignant, and revealing as it examines gender relations that somehow still feel relevant thousands of years late

    1. Play “Souvenir” — The Marcelle
      8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

      Max & Louie Productions presents “Souvenir”  Click here to buy tickets.

      Dubbed by her critics as the “Dire Diva of Din”, passionate music lover and wealthy socialite, Florence Foster Jenkins enjoyed a remarkably successful concert career even though she was unburdened by talent and deliriously tone deaf.

      Her story is told through the eyes of her pianist, Cosme McMoon. A truely talented musician, he regards her at first as a little more then an easy way to pay the rent, but his initial contempt gives way to reluctant admiration, then friendship and a unique kind of love.

      Their bizarre partnership yielded off-key recitals that earned them standing ovations and cultish fame-culminating in a sold-out performance at Carnegie Hall.

      Get to know this epic musical odd-couple in “Souvenir”, a tuneful comedy which beguiles the hopeful artist that lives in us all.

      Open Seating. To help insure that we can locate everyone attending and sit together, click here to RSVP Michael T. at michael@primetimersstl.org or call him at the phone number in the member directory.
