TILLAMOOK — Tickets are on sale for the Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts latest production, “Money Matters,” at TAPA’s Barn Community Playhouse. The play runs Nov. 3 through 19.
The comedic farce will show at 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays (Nov. 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 and 18); and 2 p.m. Sundays (Nov. 12 and 19). Doors open 30 minutes prior to curtain.
The Association will hold an opening night gala celebration Friday, Nov. 3, where every ticket purchased includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a beverage of choice.
Written by Michael Parker and Susan Parker, and directed by Rikki Reid, “Money Matters” tells the story of the late Mr. Hammond, who spent 20 years printing $20 bills on a printing press he built in the basement of Monet Manor. After his death 10 years ago, his faithful retainer George and daughter Annie continued the family business for Mr. Hammond’s widow, who recently passed away.
Contrary to her promise to leave the manor and all her assets to George and Annie, she has bequeathed the manor to a stranger, Mr. Bud Davis, who is emphatic about turning it into a retirement home for ladies. Determined to keep the manor, Annie invites an old friend and sorority sister, Charmaine Beauregard, to play a ghost so as to help convince Bud that the manor is unsuitable for a retirement home because it is haunted.
The playhouse is located at 1204 Ivy St., one block west of U.S. Highway 101.
Reserved seating is recommended through Diamond Art Jewelers (307 Main St.), or call 503-842-7940. Tickets are $15 per person.
