Playcrafters Dances In With ‘Six Dance Lessons’ This Weekend
Playcrafters Barn Theatre is proud to present “Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks” written by Richard Alfieri. The show runs October 1-3, 8-10, Friday & Saturday 7:30PM and Sunday 3PM.

The comedy is rated PG-13 for Adult Themes. It’s directed by Jennifer Kingry, and stars Stephanie Naab and Adam Cerny.
Lily, an aging but formidable retiree, hires Michael, an acerbic dance instructor, to give her dance lessons in her condo in St. Petersburg Beach, Florida. Antagonism between a gay man and the wife of a Southern Baptist minister gives way to profound compatibility as they swing dance, tango, foxtrot, and cha-cha while sharing barbs and intimacies along with the dance steps. By the final lesson, Lily shares with Michael her most closely guarded secret, and he shares with her his greatest gifts – loyalty and compassion. A poignant comedy with music and dance, the play also address the serious issues of ageism and intolerance.
Since its Los Angeles premiere and Broadway opening, Six Dance Lesson in Six Weeks has been translated into 14 languages and has traversed the globe with productions in 24 countries. The play has established itself as an international hit and one of the most produced plays in the world.
