Rachel Getting Staged

Summertime is the perfect time for family reunions. Standing around sweating with some uncles who are the type of men you generally avoid in public; enduring conversations with friends-of-the-family who make it clear by lunch they're just here for the free booze; you get the idea. But then there's Rachel. Cousin Rachel. That mysterious young women who garners stares as she enters the room. Sure, she's blood related to most of these awkward bastards--but there's something about her. She lived in Rome for most of her young life, but left quickly after her husband's mysterious death. No one can really trust her, but everyone is drawn to her. Come judge her for yourself during the Garland Civic Theatre's production of My Cousin Rachel. The show runs Fridays through Sundays through September 11 at the Granville Arts Center, 300 North 5th St. in Garland. Tickets are $20.

Thursdays-Sundays; Fridays, Saturdays. Starts: Aug. 19. Continues through Sept. 11, 2010
