Description: A special theatre event featuring short stories by 20th Century humorist James Thurber will be presented on the Dorset Playhouse stage on Friday evening February 16th. With the title of A Thurber Carnival, the program will include three of Thurber’s highly imaginative and popular yarns. The presentation of A Thurber Carnival combines staged storytelling by seasoned members of the Dorset Players with narrative material created solely for this performance. James Thurber was a newspaper writer who joined the staff of The New Yorker magazine in 1927 both as a writer and artist. His inventive cartoons and short stories portrayed the frustrations and eccentricities of ordinary people and changed the character of American humor. Thurber’s essays, stories, fables and comic drawings have been collected in over 30 books. Selected works of his also continue to be reprinted in textbooks and anthologies. Curtain time for A Thurber Carnival is 7:30 PM at the Dorset Playhouse, Cheney Road, Dorset. The theatre café offering coffee and desert opens one-hour prior to the performance. General admission to the performance is free to the public. However, voluntary donations to the Dorset Playhouse building maintenance and preservation fund are appreciated. The Dorset Players, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that owns and operates the historic Dorset Playhouse and is dedicated to fostering the arts in the community through theatrical presentations, educational workshops and other entertainments.
