Be careful what you wish for …


Want to know what’s on “The Love List”? Well, you need tickets to one of the upcoming performances at the Johnson City Community Theater.

Joe Smith, who handles publicity for the JCCT, said he’s seeing more and more patrons from Unicoi County attending the performances at the theater, and, in fact, I’ve talked to several folks from Erwin, including former Vice Mayor Connie Denney, who tell me how much they enjoy the shows. Connie remembers particularly enjoying “Ten Little Indians,” “Godspell” and “The Fall of the House of Usher.”

Of course, in recent years, a number of Unicoi Countians have had starring roles in many of the productions.

The Erwin Record is one of the corporate sponsors for “The Love List,” a comedy guaranteed to deliver an evening full of laughs.

The show opens Friday, Feb. 15, at 8 p.m. and continues Feb. 16, 22, 23 and 29 and March 1 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 24, at 2 p.m.

Here’s some details about “The Love List”:

“The Love List” introduces Bill, a statistician and lonely bachelor who has not had much luck in the female department. In fact, he has been single for many years. Eager to help his friend find true love, Bill’s close buddy, Leon, gives him a subscription to a dating service that he purchased from a gypsy woman. As it turns out, this dating service is no ordinary match-making service.

The first assignment is to develop a list of the top 10 traits in the ideal woman. Bill and Leon have different opinions of what this dream girl should be. But no sooner does Bill finish this list when there is a knock at the door and young Justine arrives. And to Bill’s surprise, she is a walking checklist of his original list.

At first it’s all fine and dandy, but as Bill and Leon begin making alterations to the list, they realize that Justine is changing, too. In some instances, it’s hilarious, but other times it becomes disastrous. It’s a lesson in being careful for what you wish for in this hilarious comedy for Valentine’s season.

Produced through special arrangement with Samuel French Inc., The Love List stars Brad Davis, Lindsay Light and Chris Murray and is being directed by Sharon Ramsey Salmers.

This show contains mature subject matter and is intended for adult audiences only.

Tickets are $10 for students and seniors and $12 for adults. Reservations can be made by calling 926-2542.

Enjoy the show,
