‘Opal’ play continues at PACT
Performances of “Opal’s Million Dollar Duck” will continue this weekend and next at the Port Aransas Community Theatre, 2327 State Hwy. 361.
The play is a sequel in the “Opal” series (Opal’s Baby, Bad Year for Tomatoes, Tea House for the August Moon).
Cast members are Laura Crocker as Opal, Dianne Govella as Rosie, Marg Paton as Queenie and Chuck Thompson as Desmond. Larry Paton is the director.
The production is slated to continue Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Jan. 12-14 and 19-21, at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee performance at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 15.
The comedy, suitable for all ages, by John Patrick is set in a ramshackle, ancient Victorian house at the edge of the municipal dump. Opal is an eccentric collector and purveyor of treasures and her best friend Rosie runs the hot meatball stand. Two actors, looking for costumes and other items become convinced Opal has found a missing masterpiece worth a million dollars and are set on obtaining the painting for themselves. Hilarity ensues as the duo ends up resorting to everything from outrageous flattery to using “knock-out drops” trying to get their hands on the treasure.
