“We originally had slotted THE BOYS FROM SYRACUSE as our Spring show,” says Melissa Barcomb-Doyle, president of Tred Avon Players. “However, due to unforeseen circumstances, we replaced it with VANITIES, a touching and humorous journey of friendship seen through the eyes of three women. We are excited to bring this highly successful Off-Broadway show to the Shore.”

VANITIES opens on Thursday, April 18 and runs for seven performances through Sunday, April 28. Thrifty Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoons are at 2:00 p.m. at the Oxford Community Center, 200 Oxford Rd in Oxford.
