Circle Theatre Players presents Becky’s New Car at SLCA

Suzanne Baker of Averill Park, seen here as the mother, is frustrated with her son, played by Jerred Hickey, who at age 26 years still lives at home.

Sand Lake Center for the Arts, Circle Theatre Players present Becky’s New Car, written by Steven Dietz, with special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service Inc.

A comedy about life and the roads we take through it.  An escape from the endless politics, stock market decline, and other daily woes of modern life.  It is a story of the perfect blend of funny moments and the conflict a woman faces when being pulled in two directions.  It is about choices and consequence that could believably happen to anyone. Like Yogi Berra once suggested, a person coming to a fork in the road and taking it.

Show dates are March 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 at 8pm and March 17 and 24 at 2:30pm. Tickets are $18 for adults, $10 under the age of 18. For prepaid reservations go to or call 518-674-2007.  The center is handicapped accessible with plenty of free parking.
