Whidbey Playhouse offers peek for Big Brothers, Big Sisters

Tickets are available now for a sneak peek performance of “The Curious Savage” at the Whidbey Playhouse Thursday, April 5 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $25 and proceeds benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Island County.

Come early for appetizers and refreshments. Playhouse doors will open at 7 p.m.

“The Curious Savage,” by John Patrick, is a comedy about wealth, money and what it means to be a family. The story follows Ethel P. Savage, whose deceased husband left her $10 million that her grown stepchildren will stop at nothing to get their hands on.

They have committed her to a sanatorium hoping to bring her to her senses. In the sanatorium, she meets various social misfits who just can’t adjust to life; people who need the help Mrs. Savage can provide.

Community members and BBBS supporters are invited to come and enjoy the play and intermission refreshments sponsored by BBBS board membership.

Supporters are also encouraged to donate $25 to allow a Big or Little of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program to attend the event.

“This is the second year that we are getting a sneak peak performance of the wonderful work our local thespians are doing. What could be a better way to spend your evening than spending a night out enjoying a fun play while supporting our local youth,” Peggy Dyer, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters, said in a release.

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to Big Brothers Big Sisters’ mission of connecting Island County children in need with caring adult mentors.

Tickets can be purchased or donated by contacting Big Brothers Big Sisters at 279-0644 or or at
