Chautauqua Playhouse announces the opening of “Social Security” by Andrew Bergman, starting June 24.

The play follows the story of married couple, art dealers who have their domestic tranquility shattered upon the arrival of the wife’s goody goody nerd of a sister, her uptight CPA husband and her Archetypal Jewish mother. The comic sparks really begin to fly when the mother hits it off with the elderly minimalist artist who is the art dealer’s best client.

Directed by Shawn B. ONeal, the show features a cast that includes Wade Lucas, Kellie Raines, Margaret Morneau, Patty Thiel , Jon Jackson and Michael Beckett. Set design is by Rodger Hoopman, with lighting design by Don Myers.

“Social Security” will play at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and and 2 p.m. on Sundays, through July 17. Performances will be held at the Chautauqua Playhouse, 5325 Engle Road in the La Sierra Community Center in Carmichael. Admission is $18 general and $16 students, seniors, children and SARTA members.

For tickets and additional information call the theatre at (916) 489-7529. Information and tickets are also available through the Chautauqua Playhouse website cplayhouse.org.
