Theater on the Run: Replay
Due to popular demand, the Matthews Opera House & Arts
Center recently announced a special matinee production of their annual Theater on the
Run production. This performance will take place Sunday, September 19 at 2:00 pm.
Called Theater on the Run: REPLAY, this event will feature the same show performed
at Theater on the Run, but instead of moving locations, all scenes will be performed in
the Matthews Opera House theater. Tickets for the event are $35 and include light
appetizers and a free drink ticket. Tickets can be purchased online at
matthewsopera.com/replay or by calling the Matthews Opera House gallery at
“Theater on the Run sells out quickly each year, so offering this matinee performance
allows additional people to see this awesome production,” said Darren Granaas,
executive director of the Matthews.
This year, Theater on the Run centers around one full length play, Murder on the Fly by
local playwrite C.A. Dougherty. Directors of the show include Joe Saracco & Charlotte
Fladmoe, Julie Walkins, Hoodie Smock, Elysia Pederson, and Max G. Merchen.
“Not only is Theater on the Run a fantastic community theater production, but it’s also
one of our most important annual fundraisers,” Granaas added. “So a big thank you to
everyone who attends both our traditional Theater on the Run performances and our
REPLAY matinee. Your ticket supports what we do throughout the year.”
