Fountain Hills Theater’s “Love Letters” Features Local Celebrity Couples
Love Letters is a funny and poignant tale of what could have been, of friendship that sustained through the years, and an affirmation of the adage that first love is the hardest to forget. Two friends, rebellious Melissa Gardner and straight-arrow Andrew Makepeace Ladd III have exchanged notes, cards and letters with each other for over 50 years. Through these messages we follow them from second grade, through summer vacations, to college, and well into adulthood and discover that though they have spent a lifetime physically apart, perhaps, they are spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.
Each week’s performance features a different celebrity couple, starting with Kurt and Brenda Warner on January 5, 2017, and wrapping up with Mayor Linda and State Senator, John Kavanaugh. Call the theater for tickets, and enjoy a delightful evening in this interesting tribute to lasting love.
Please Note: Each couple performs one evening only.
