    What happens when American "nobility" becomes impoverished and deranged? Come help us connect the dots (and the dotty) by witnessing "Grey Gardens". Lally's Production Class presents this bizarre cocktail of decay, power-struggles, and the corrupted American Dream. It's so ill, it's funny! This week, SIX PERFORMANCES ONLY:

    Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 4:00PM and 7:30PM, each evening. A rotating cast allows you to see your friends in the leads and 28 others in support parts. Tickets on sale in the Beacon lobby during lunch times, or at the door just before performance.

    $10 for Adults, $8 Students, Beacon faculty and staff free.
