First reporting: ARTworks in Beaufort Town Center has announced that the next performance to come to its black box theatre will be "The Dining Room" by A.R. Gurney.

The play is set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household, the place where the family assembled daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions. The action is comprised of a mosaic of interrelated scenes - some funny, some touching, some rueful - which, taken together, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class WASP. The actors change roles, personalities and ages with virtuoso skill as they portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids. 

Performances will be March 24 - 26 at 8 p.m.; March 27 at 3 p.m.; March 31 - April 2 at 8 p.m.; and  April 3 at 3 p.m.

Performances are $15 per person, $10 for students (13+), $5 for children (12 and under) and $10 for groups of 10 or more. To purchase tickets, call 843-379-2787 or visit ARTworks from 11am - 6pm Tues - Fri and Noon - 4pm on Saturday.

Thursday, March 24 and Thursday, March 31, are "Pay What You Can" Performances.
