Blue Rose Theater presents tale of family, home, land

An original theater production about land, home and family opens Friday at Sharlot Hall Museum's amphitheater.

Produced by the museum's Blue Rose Theater, the short play tells the story of a Northern Arizona family, their relationships with each other and the bond they have with their land.

Beginning in the present and working backward through time, "Homestead" presents a moving portrait of four generations.

Written by local playwright Karla Burkitt and directed by Arizona Classical Theatre's Kelly Johnston, "Homestead" employs six versatile performers to portray 12 individuals across a span of 111 years.

The result is a series of family portraits that speak clearly of the love that binds a family together and holds them to a place they call home.

Performances of "Homestead" are at 8:15 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 8, 9 15 and 16, and at 7 p.m. Sunday, June 10 and 17. Tickets are $5 in advance at Sharlot Hall Museum, or at the door.

In case of bad weather, the performances will move inside the museum.
