Lines forming early for Pinedorado Follies’ ‘Vacation 2: The Musical’

For the reassurance of having reserved seating for the 2014 Pinedorado Follies show, “Vacation 2: The Musical,” some dedicated theatergoers will queue up really early Friday, Aug. 1, in front of the Cambria Chamber of Commerce building.

Assigned-seat tickets in the first eight rows of seating for the show go on sale at 9 a.m.

Seats in the first four rows are $35 each; in the next four rows, $25. Unassigned general admission tickets are $15.

That morning, each person in line can buy up to six reserved-seat tickets. After the first rush is over, tickets will be available at the chamber office, 767 Main St. The show will be on stage for five consecutive evenings, Aug. 27 through 31.

Already sold out are the $200 Angel Ticket packages that offer front-row seats for two, two glasses of wine and two tickets to the cast wrap party.

All sales count as a donation to the Cambria Lions Club, with proceeds benefitting local charities.

As usual, the musical has been a long labor of love. The show was written by late 2013 and has been in the works for months, in song-and-dance rehearsals since spring, in production for the entire summer, and in nightly full-cast rehearsals since mid-July.

Writer-producer-director Peggy Christianson is delighted with her entire cast, of course, but seems to have special affection for this year’s unusual star of the show, Beery the bear.

“Though somewhat scary, Beery is very photogenic,” Christianson said, “and loves attention.”
