Potato Gumbo, by Jean Ciampi, PG-Poignant Comedy
Potato Gumbo is an honest, touching and zany look at the potentially brutal challenges of aging. “Potato Gumbo” tells the poignant story of Gretchen and Thomas, which includes her dream, an ill-gotten pair of handcuffs, a diagnosis, and the adult children who walk the delicate line of parenting their parents.
Gretchen Nelson could create the ideal gumbo recipe utilizing the unlikely ingredient of potato — if only she could get from her retirement community to the famed School of Cooking in New Orleans. Fellow retiree Thomas Trahan is soon drawn into Gretchen’s offbeat schemes. An overbearing daughter (hell-bent on saving Gretchen from herself), a supportive son, a dictatorial manager and a couple of helpful and hilarious friends round out the cast, creating a recipe for a real and comic take on aging.
Located at 907 East Blanco Road, Boerne. For ticket information call 210-771-8809; or visit www.boernetheater.org.

Dorothy in Wonderland
This is a carefully and cleverly crafted adaptation and integration of the words and works of L. Frank Baum (author of “The Wizard of Oz” and Lewis Carroll (author of “Alice in Wonderland). The settings of Oz and Wonderland collide when Dorothy makes it to the end of the Yellow Brick Road and is about to meet the Wizard of Oz. Before she makes it home to Kansas, another whirlwind appears and sweeps Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion away to Wonderland, where they interact with inhabitants of that world: Alice, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat and others.
