The Pyramid Players will take the stage at 7 p.m. on Saturday, August 19, at The Moon to present the musical production “Game of Fortune”.
Co-written by Pyramid Studios’ play writing class, “Game of Fortune” is set at the funeral of the multi-millionaire game tycoon, Bartholomew M. Bradley, who has left only an odd assortment of objects, a will that reads like a scavenger hunt and a deadline. Will the heirs be able to figure it all out and mend their wicked ways?
This is The Players 16th annual performance and it is the crown jewel of Pyramid’s unique visual and performing arts program. The performers are adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities whose true abilities shine through on stage.
The doors open at 5:00 p.m. with an art show and sale of art and handcrafted jewelry from Pyramid’s five centers around the state. Those arriving between 5 and 6 p.m. will be given “seat savers” so they can feel free to browse the art show and silent auction, and partake of the luscious hors d’oeuvres spread. At 6:15 p.m., Pyramid Studios’ premiere rock band, The Electric People, will provide pre-show entertainment. Curtain is at 7.
Admission is $10 per person and tickets can be purchased at four Tallahassee locations: Pyramid Studios at 1910 Commonwealth Lane, Quest Management Group, Inc. at 2700 S. Blair Stone Road, Ste. 4 and both Black Dog Café at Lake Ella and Black Dog on the Square in Railroad Square. Advance ticket purchases are recommended to avoid waiting at the door.
The Pyramid Players and artists study their craft at Pyramid Studios, part of a private, non-profit organization that provides training for nearly 700 individuals in five Florida cities. All are focused on visual and performing arts.
