The Lompoc Civic Theatre will wrap up its production of “Bloomsday,” an Irish time-traveling love story, this weekend with shows at 7:30 p.m. on both Friday, April 5, and Saturday, April 6, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 7.

Presale tickets for $15 are available at Alfie’s Fish & Chips, 1036 North H St., and at the Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce, 111 South I St.
“Bloomsday,” written in 2015 by Steven Dietz, tells the story of Robert, an American who returns to Dublin to reunite with Cait, the woman who captured his heart 35 years ago. Dancing backward through time, the older couple retraces their steps on Bloomsday, which celebrates the novel “Ulysses” by James Joyce.
