“[title of show]” at the Westchester Sandbox Theater

Sandbox-Theater1

Who says four chairs and a keyboard don’t make a musical? The Westchester Sandbox Theatre is out to prove that such a combination makes a funny, whimsical and completely off-beat musical called “[title of show].”

Featuring a terrific quartet of local theater performers, this musical is like no other you’ve ever seen. It tells the story of two out-of-work actors who set out to write a musical about…well, writing a musical. And through their journey, they are able to reach for their dreams and make friendships that will last forever. Eight performances only, so don’t miss it. “[title of show]” runs through Oct. 12: Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $28 for adults and $24 for seniors and students. Call the box office at 914-630-0804 for information about group rates. Tickets may be purchased online at www.wstshows.com. The Westchester Sandbox Theatre is located at 931c E Boston Post Road in Mamaroneck.

Deadline for our What’s Going On section is 12 p.m. every Friday. Though space is not guaranteed, we will do our best to accommodate your listings. Please send all items to news@hometwn.com.
