1920s comedy to be performed in Lincoln

LINCOLN — As part of Lincoln’s 100-year celebration of the Burnham Foundation, members of the town have gotten together to produce the play “Silas Takes the Air.” The play will be performed June 21 and 22 at Burnham Hall at 7 p.m.

The play is a 1920’s romantic comedy that was at one time performed by Lincoln’s own centenarian, Hattie Brown.

The cast and crew hope to fill the house each night and generate revenue for the Burnham Centennial fundraising campaign. That said, tickets will not be sold for the show. Instead there will be a donation jar at the door. Organizers  hope people will consider making a generous donation in honor of the Burnham centennial fundraising campaign, but even if pockets aren’t feeling very deep, what is most important to them is that folks come see the show.

In the spirit of celebrating 100 years of Burnham, a limited number of special front row seating in extra comfy chairs will be offered at $100 per seat. Contact Sally Ober at 802-349-3440 to reserve one.

This show stars Todd Goodyear, Nancy Stevens, Ian and Grace Freeman, Aidan Warren, Leeya Tudek, Andrew Morris, Megan Harris, Shawn Kimball, and Sally Ober. The cast is comprised of mostly Lincoln folks and directors Martha Chesley and Andi Gordon have close connections to Lincoln too. The cast has had so much fun putting this show together and they look forward to sharing it with the public. Refreshments will be provided during intermission.
