Looking for warm-hearted comedy relief during the dog days of summer? Ojai ACT has Just the Ticket for you. From the pen of prolific playwright Peter Quilter, Just the Ticket is a joyful and ingenious one-woman show starring Ojai actress Lynn Van Emmerik, directed by Tom Eubanks.
Just the Ticket tells the delightful story of Susan, whose life path finds her single at 60. To celebrate her birthday milestone she embarks on a solo adventure to Australia, taking the audience along with her. She’s charming, she’s chatty, and, admittedly, kind of a klutz. Whether or not she finds romance on stage would be telling—but audiences will love her for sure. Don’t miss Peter Quilter’s heartwarming comedy that proves coming of age stories aren’t just for kids.
Just the Ticket runs three weekends beginning Friday, August 19, through Sunday, September 4. Performance times are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. General admission is $20, $18 for students, seniors, and Art Center members.
