Ten Fifteen to kickoff 2024 with a trip down memory lane.
Shooting Star explores the woulda-coulda-shouldas that come with examining one’s past relationships. This tender-hearted story of past love is perfect for fans of both traditional and nontraditional romance... just in time for Valentine’s Day! This production marks the first of the community theater’s new season and will play for three weekends in their Downtown Astoria space.
About the Show: Snowed in overnight at a middle-America airport, college lovers Elena Carson and Reed McAllister have an unexpected and life-altering reunion. Elena has stayed true to her hippie-ish, counter-culture path, while Reed has gone predictably corporate and conservative. As the night gives way to laughter, banter, remembrance and alcohol, Elena and Reed revisit a past that holds more surprises than they imagined—and a present that neither of them could have predicted. Filled with laughter and ache, Shooting Star is a bittersweet romantic comedy about the middle days of our lives, and how we got there.
