The Richland Players’ production of “And the Winner Is” opens Friday.
Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, March 16-17 and 23-24, and at 2 p.m. March 18 and 25 at the company’s theater, 608 The Parkway.
The acclaimed Mitch Albom comedy centers on a self-obsessed movie star who finally scores an Oscar nomination — and then dies before the show. But he finagles a way to return to earth for the big night, with his agent, rival, girlfriend and ex-wife caught up in the craziness.
The production stars Michael Thomas, Terence Knox, Robert Chisholm, Patrick Killoran, Diana Milton and Katrina Carlson.
Never miss a local story.
The red carpet will be rolled out opening weekend.
