Tri-County Performing Arts Center’s next production is “Farragut North,” a political thriller.  It opens Friday and runs through April 29 at the theater, 245 E. High Street in Pottstown. Set  during a tight primary race in Desmoines, Iowa, it tells the story of Stephen Bellamy, a young, aggressive, talented, and tremendously successful press secretary for Governor Morris in his bid to run for President. Thrown into the scheming backroom politics of more seasoned operatives, Stephen struggles between the lust for power and loyalty to the cause. Named for the Metro Station that is the center of the Washington, D.C. lobbyist district, “Farragut North,” is now a major motion picture, “The Ides of March,” starring George Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood, and Philip Seymour Hoffman.Showtimes are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays.  There will be a talkback with the director and cast Sunday April 22. The show includes adult situations and language.Tickets are $17 for adults and $15 for students and seniors (65+).
Tickets may be purchased at or at the door the night of the show if available.  As always, there are discounts for groups of 10 or more.  Check the website, or call the theater at 610-970-1199 for more information.
