Have you ever lost anything that meant a great deal to you? Something, that if you could ever find it again, would make a huge difference in your life? If you have, then “A Little Piece of Heaven” could be the shop for you. Coming to the Village Church Community Theater with performances on Fridays and Saturdays, March 9,10 16, 17 at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, March 11 and 18 at 2 p.m. is the comedy drama “A Little Piece of Heaven,” which takes place in a curiosity shop called by that name.
The owners of this shop where people find things they’ve lost are known only as Elizabeth and Henry and there’s something unusual about these two. One day into the shop comes Michael, a biker comes who is definitely looking for something. He goes to work for Elizabeth and Henry and meets Lily, an 87-year-old woman who has been coming around for years searching for something. Lily is a strong-minded woman who does not hesitate to say what she’s thinking and she and Michael seem to disagree about everything. Soon, however, their relationship grows from suspicion to trust and everlasting respect as they help each other find what they have been searching for. The play is funny and poignant with a twist of the mysterious.
Veteran actor at the Village Church Community Chris Marshman has been cast in the lead as Lily and Jeff James, in his acting debut at the theater, as the co-lead, Michael. Additional cast from the greater San Diego community are: John Chalmers, Griffin Edwards, Kirk Duncan, Kevin Fernandez, Christine and Tori Gatlin, Hailey Galuppo, Bobbie Helland, Kevin Hettinger, Kyra McCullough, Pati Reynolds-Dickson, Crosby Ross, Marilyn Stenoien, and Ron Zollars. Producing Director is Margie Wood; Stage Director Kirk Duncan; Lighting Director Twyla Arant; Set Design by Jeff James; and Costume Director Pat Dickinson.
The performances are free of charge with general seating available beginning one half hour before the performances. Donations are gratefully accepted.
