Marion Jeffery to star in Reader’s Theatre’s production

Miners Foundry Cultural Center’s next Reader’s Theatre will be “The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe” on Sunday.

“The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe” is the portrayal of a number of zany characters involved in everyday life. The play was written by Jane Wagner in 1985 for actress Lily Tomlin, who has performed it on Broadway and on the road ever since.

Tim O’Connor directs actress Marion Jeffery in the Reader’s Theatre production. Jeffery has appeared in several Reader’s Theatre productions, including last year’s “84 Charing Cross Road.” She has worked on theater projects for Oak Tree Community School Charter, EnCompass Education Center, Grizzly Hill School and the Nevada City School of the Arts.

“This is a marvelous piece for Marion. It’s almost like it was written for her. She brings just the right spirit to each of these people, and you really feel you know what they are going through,” said actor and director O’Connor, who has directed all but one Reader’s Theatre production at the Foundry.

Sunday’s showtime is 2 p.m. Admission is $12 general and $10 for seniors and students in advance, and $14 at the door. Tickets are at Odyssey Books and Harmony Books.

The Foundry is at 325 Spring St. in Nevada City. For reservations, credit card orders or information, call 265-5040.
