Two of the actresses have played each other's roles.
During a Westborough Players’ Club rehearsal of “Arsenic and Old Lace” last week, Beverly Bourgeois and Elizabeth Horman were on stage together and “she said one of my lines and I said one of her lines,” according to Bourgeois. Bourgeois plays Abby Brewster, and Horman plays sister Martha Brewster. The actresses have played each other’s roles in other productions of the play – an unexpected twist to this weekend’s shows. “As long as we don't get ourselves mixed up,” everything should be fine, Bourgeois said during another rehearsal last week. “Abby and Martha almost end each other's sentences." The Westborough Players’ Club’s performances of the Joseph Kesselring play are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, at…

At the same time, “Annie” is set during the Great Depression, with “a lot of real historical” references, a facet that “hits home for me this year,” she says. “I see people struggling. People aren’t living on the streets in the sort of masses that they were in the 30s, but people are having a hard time financially with their jobs. There’s that sort of echo there,” Worrest said during rehearsal Friday night at the Gibbons Middle School. The shows are at…

The local theater company is selling season tickets for the first time.
Some audience members attending the Westborough Players' Club's upcoming season opener also will have seats -- for the first time -- for the year's remaining two productions. The club's new season ticket program had generated about eight or 10 sales as of Friday night, Corresponding Secretary Ted Frumkin said during rehearsal for "Annie" that evening, at the Gibbons Middle School. “I think that what’s been helpful is we got the word out early about this show and the rest of the season," he said.
