Williamston Theatre presents World Premiere of FLAP!
Mid-Michigan’s newest professional theatre company, Williamston Theatre, located at 122 S. Putnam in downtown Williamston, finishes its 2006-2007 season with the World Premiere of Flap by Michigan playwright, Annie Martin. Tickets for this funny, heartfelt romp through the world of divorce, new houses and flying rodents (not necessarily in that order) are now on sale.
Starting a new chapter of her life, Gail is looking for the answer to the age-old question, “What should I do now?”. Unfortunately, what she discovers is that her new house has a terrifically sordid past, and a very unwelcoming, winged tenant! When this discovery launches her on a whirlwind of lunacy involving a soon-to-be ex-husband, a whacko neighbor and a tour bus, Gail finds herself with a lot more questions than answers.

Performances will run Thursday and Friday evenings at eight o’clock, Saturday matinees at three o’clock and evenings at eight o’clock, and Sunday matinees at two o’clock.
