The Pewter Plough’s third show of its 36th season is “Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks,” an international hit by Richard Alfieri. The two-character play is about an improbable relationship between a headstrong, strait-laced woman who hires an acerbic and adventurous male dance instructor to give her private lessons.
What begins with a rocky start between opposites tentatively gives way to laughs, jokes, a cry, as they
progress through six weeks of dancing the swing, tango, foxtrot and cha-cha. Despite their differences, they both gradually open up, developing a profound connection while sharing life’s secrets, joys, fears, tragedies and finally ultimate truths.
The cast at the Plough features Kelli Rodda as Lily and Mike Shanley as Michael.
A gala champagne opening is set for Saturday, June 23, including a special champagne and dessert buffet after the show, with pianist/ vocalist David Manion performing live at the Baldwin. There is a preview performance is set for Friday, June 22, and Sunday matinee on June 24.
