The freshwater theater returns in May with THE BOOZE CLUB BUCKET LIST

The Freshwater Theater presents The Bucket List of Booze Club, a regional premiere by Maureen Paraventi!

Collette’s battle with cancer forces her to confront lifelong regrets and come to terms with the fact that her smart, ambitious daughter Ree-Ree idolizes her “Aunt Jen” far more than herself. Jen is a successful lawyer who failed in love and realizes she could be single forever. Animated grandma Mary Ann has a much younger boyfriend, Eric, who inadvertently makes her feel old, while Amy faces the classic challenges of the “sandwich generation”: an empty nest, a sick parent, and a boring, unfulfilling marriage.

This amazing script will have you laughing till you sob as a group of friends help each other navigate more than one type of life change in their 50s!

The show will be directed by a member of the Freshwater Theater Company Rachel Flynnwho previously co-led Size at the Minnesota Fringe.
