Chautauqua Playhouse, in association with Celebration Arts, announces its production of “Driving Miss Daisy” by Alfred Uhry, opening Jan. 18.

Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize, “Driving Miss Daisy” tells the post-World War II story of a rich, sharp-tongued Jewish widow who meets her new black chauffeur. Over a series of absorbing scenes spanning 25 years, the two grow to have one of theater’s most unlikely friendships. This classic is filled with wit and wisdom, and explores the importance of tolerance and love.

The show is produced in association with Celebration Arts and features James Wheatley as Hoke, Janice Reade-Hoberg as Miss Daisy and Chris Lamb as Booley. The production is directed by James Wheatley. Set design is by Rodger Hoopman with lighting design by Don Myers.

“Driving Miss Daisy” will run at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays through Feb. 23. There will be an additional Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. on Feb. 23. All performances will be held at the Chautauqua Playhouse, 5325 Engle Road in the La Sierra Community Center in Carmichael.  Admission is $19 general and $17 students, seniors, children and SARTA members.

Information and tickets are available through the Chautauqua Playhouse website, cplayhouse.org, or call the box office at (916) 489-7529.
