When the Willows Theatre Company closed abruptly last week, patrons were left holding tickets for three canceled shows.
Now, three Contra Costa County theater groups have stepped up to ensure the show will go on. The Pittsburg Community Theatre will honor Willows tickets for its performance of "MASH" at 8 p.m. on Oct. 12-13 and 19-20; and 2 p.m. on Oct. 14 and 21. Call 925-439-7529 for more information.
Fans of Ol' Blue Eyes can use their Willows tickets to see Diablo Theatre Company's production of "My Way, A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra," which runs Sept. 7-29 at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek. Tickets are available at the center's box office, 1601 Civic Drive.
Finally, Center Repertory Company will accept Willows tickets for performances of the musical "Lucky Stiff," which runs from Aug. 31 to Oct. 7 also at the Lesher Center. Tickets can be exchanged at the center's box office, the Walnut Creek library and the Barnes & Noble in Walnut Creek. For more information, call 925-943-7469.
