Lompoc Civic Theatre’s 44th season continues with a dinner theater production of “Wally’s Café” by Sam Bobrick and Ron Clark. Anne Ramsey, who has performed with LCT as Florence Foster Jenkins in "Glorious" and Sister Hubert in "Nunsense," is directing this fast-paced comedy. She feels that "Wally's Cafe" is “the perfect play for an evening that will bring laughter, thoughtfulness and tenderness to everyone.”
“Wally’s Café”opened on Broadway in 1981, starring James Coco, Rita Moreno and Sally Struthers. It is a light-hearted comedy about Wally, the owner of a roadside cafe sixty miles outside of Las Vegas, his wife Louise, the long-suffering spouse of a man with a dream, and their first customer, Janet, a star-struck Midwestern girl hitchhiking her way to Hollywood. The play unfolds in three scenes, which take place in 1940, 1958 and 1981. Over this time, we see their hopes, dreams, achievements and disappointments. LCT’s production stars Rob Marland as Wally, Chris Jeszeck as Louise, and Cara Carucci as Janet.
The play will open at the Mission Club (formerly the Village Country Club) in the Ellery Room at 4300 Club House Road in Lompoc. Performances will be held on Friday and Saturday nights, Sept. 22-23, Oct. 6-7 and Oct. 13-14. Doors open at 5:00 pm, dinner is served at 5:30 pm and the show begins at 6:30 pm. Reservations are required on the Tuesday before each weekend’s performances.
