When Jack jets into his parents’ Ohio home, suspicions rise. Why has the banker left Manhattan without his widely despised wife, Jenny? Where did he come upon all his newfound wealth? Are looming legal difficulties following?
That’s the basis of Theresa Rebeck’s play “Dead Accounts,” a contemporary comedy revolving greed, small-town values and family. It premiered in 2012 in Cincinnati and closed on Broadway in 2013.
It runs July 12-28 at Theatre 98 (350 Morphy Ave., Fairhope). Friday and Saturday curtain is 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinee is 2:30 p.m. There will be an extra performance on Thursday, July 25 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $18, $12 for students.
For more information, call the box office at 251-928-4366 or go to theatre98.org.
If you’re tired of only watching and want to participate in a show, auditions for Theatre 98’s production of “Godspell” will be held July 22 and 23. Performances will be Oct. 11-27.
Auditions will include cold readings from the script along with learning and performing choreography. Participants should prepare 90 seconds of a Broadway-style song and be prepared to sing scales.
It is for ages 13 and up. Interested parties should fill out an audition form available at theatre98.org/auditions.
MAC debuts new exhibit space
July is Mobile Arts Council’s (MAC) first month in their new exhibit space in Room 1927 (6 S. Joachim St.) and they’ve picked wide-open themes to mark the move beyond their old confines.
Emily Sommer has worked in real estate since the 1980s but also expresses her concerns for environmental issues through her art. How concerned? She co-founded an organization for teaching realtors, developers and elected officials about human impact on nature.
Her watercolor series “Earth, Water, Life” is based on calling attention to the biological and botanical richness surrounding the state’s waterways.
Mobile’s Plein Air Society centers its activities on capturing the natural world while physically immersed in that setting, rather than working from photographs. They’ve painted in various locations in the area, from downtown to marinas, historic sites to gardens and the Causeway to Dauphin Island. Their exhibit is a glance across the scenery endemic to the Central Gulf Coast.
“Alabama Then and Now” consists of 30 paintings of places with historical significance in state history as rendered by members of the Alabama Plein Air Artists. Many of the paintings will be for sale. Its tour of the state, endorsed by the Alabama Bicentennial Commission, brings it to Mobile.
MAC offices remain at 318 Dauphin St. through July.
Gallery hours for Room 1927 will be 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays. A special reception takes place during the July 12 LoDa Artwalk. The exhibitions run through July 30.
For more information, call 251-432-9796 or go to mobilearts.org.
