Vintage Players Present Chasing Manet

Come chase your dreams with The Vintage Players newest production of Tina Howe’s “Chasing Manet.” 

This quirky comedy has an inspirational message at its core concerning the potential that lives in us all.

Jane McMillan stars as the indomitable Catherine, a self-searching artist who desperately wants to escape the confines of nursing home life and return to her glory days in Paris. Terri Klein, as Rennie, her ebullient and slightly confused roommate, proves to be a willing conspirator in Catherine’s grand scheme. 

Directed by Carolyn Kirsch, with musical direction by Bob Alexander. The cast is rounded out with the talents of John Hall, Richard Kamins, Naomi Kamins, Pat Farrell, Peter Sipples, Cookie Quinones, Rick Nelson, Susan Hall, Gerry Matthews, Lynne Fiducia, Charlie Rich and Bob Alexander. Production assistants are Marian Katz, Peggy Welsh, Pat Murray, Eleanor Howard and John Tivenan. 

Performances will be Nov. 16 and 17 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 18 at 3 p.m. at the Green Street Arts Center, 51 Green St., Middletown. 

Admission is free but donations are gladly accepted. Any proceeds will benefit the children’s programs of Green Street Arts Center and Oddfellows Playhouse.
