Tickets on sale for Magenta Theater’s ‘Don Quixote de La Center’ production


Tickets are now on sale for Magenta Theater’s production of Don Quixote de La Center.

The performance by local playwright David Bareford centers around a loose adaptation of the novel Don Quixote de la Mancha. It is set at a group home for senior citizens in contemporary La Center.

In the play, an aging resident decides he is a “knight of old.” He embarks on comical and heartfelt misadventures as he and those around him grapple with dementia, identity, and what defines them, stated a news release.

Returning to the Magenta stage and filling out the cast are actors David Roberts, Laura Henderson, Jason Litts, Jessica Moran, Reba Hoffman and Carol Radkins.
