Renton Civic Theatre’s production of Tom Stoppard’s “Arcadia” opens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and runs through April 18.
Directed by Janet Cole Hamilton, “Arcadia” moves back and forth between 1809 and the present at the elegant estate owned by the Coverly family.
The 1809 scenes reveal a household in transition. Present day scenes depict the Coverly descendants and two competing scholars who are researching a possible scandal at the estate in 1809 involving Lord Byron.
This classic play moves smoothly between the centuries and explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between classical and romantic temperaments, and the disruptive influence of sex on our lives.
The show plays 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays from April 3 to 18.
Tickets are $22 for adults and $17 for students and seniors. For tickets, call 425-226-5529 or visit www.rentoncivictheatre.org.
