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

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].”Sandbox-Theater1

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.

At Home on the Sound event

At-Home-on-the-SoundRetired television producer and writer Don Epstein, a longtime resident of New Rochelle, will relate humorous personal reminiscences of his 40-plus years in the industry in a talk hosted by At Home on the Sound on Oct. 16. His work brought him in close contact with so many TV and film stars that he can give his talk the reverse title “Celebrities Who Have Known Me.”

Among the many past and present celebrities with whom Epstein has worked are Marlon Brando, Dolly Parton, Diana Ross, Peter Ustinov, Willie Nelson and Dr. Joyce Brothers. “Working with them toward a mutual goal of putting on the best show possible, you get to know them in a way the public seldom can,” he said.

At Home on the Sound is a service organization for individuals 60 and up who live independently in the area. Epstein’s talk is free and open to the public at St. John and Paul’s rectory meeting room at 3:30 p.m. www.AtHomeontheSound.org.

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