Keizer’s own community theatre, Keizer Homegrown Theatre, will be bringing its inaugural season to a close this Oct. 4-6 and 11-13 with their production of A.R. Gurney’s classic, The Dining Room. Shows begin at 7:30 p.m. each day.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors; they will be sold at the door as well as in advance through the Keizer Chamber of Commerce. The show runs about an hour and a half with a ten-minute intermission.

The troupe will be staging their production in the Keizer Civic Center Iris Ballroom, bringing in risers and curtains to transform the space into a thrust stage with a 99-seat raised audience section.

More than half the cast and production staff are Keizerites. Two of the actors, Kathleen Lukens and Robert Nove, will look familiar to those following KHT—they appeared onstage in their previous production of Macbeth. A member of KHT’s board of directors—Laura Reid—will also be appearing in the production.
