The Marathon Community Theatre is staging its final main-stage production of the season, the musical "Taking My Turn," through May 8.
Performances are April 28, 29 and 30 and May 5, 6, 7 and 8. Curtain is at 8 p.m. except for the May 8 show, which is a 3 p.m. manatee.
"Taking My Turn" is one of the first musicals to deal with aging. The spoken words were collected from interviews with people in their prime. The show, which opened off-Broadway in 1983, was conceived and adapted by Robert H. Livingston with music by Gary William Friedman and lyrics by Will Holt.
Among the characters: Eric, a would-be writer who has traveled the world; Charles, a railroad steward; Dorothy, a community activist; and Edna, a shy music teacher. The play takes place during the course of a year.
The Marathon Community Theatre directors are Devin Clarke and Jenn Mixon-Eick.
Tickets are $20 per person and can be purchased online at www.marathontheater.org, by calling (305) 743-0994 or at the box office, 5101 Overseas Highway in Marathon, around mile marker 49.5 oceanside.
