Harry Anderson to appear in Dickens fundraiser shows

Dickens Parlour Theatre on June 3-6 will celebrate its fifth anniversary and kick off a fundraising drive with a four-night, five-performance offering of David Mamet’s play “Oleanna,” starring actor Harry Anderson.

After five years of magic and illusion; classical and cabaret music offerings; theatrical renderings by its resident theater company, the Bethany Area Repertory Theatre (BART); lectures; and its Victorian Parlour, Dickens is also kicking off its first annual fundraising drive, seeking the community’s support for expanding its scholarship and internship programs and enhancing the scope of its theatrical offerings.

Veteran stage and television actor Anderson will be featured in the play; and following each performance, Dickets will be hosting a VIP reception in the Parlour, including champagne and hors d’ oeuvres and featuring a question-and-answer session and discussion of the Mamet work by Anderson and his co-star, Liberty Larsen.

Tickets for the event are on sale now, at $100 for the show and VIP reception or $65 for the show only, with performances June 3-6 at 7 p.m. and a 1 p.m. matinee on June 6. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit dptmagic.com or call (302) 829-1071
