Milford Public Library is partnering with the Kent County Theater Guild to present “Kalamazoo”

In partnership with the Kent County Theatre Guild, the Milford Public Library will present “Kalamazoo” on Saturday, May 13 at 1 PM in the Community Room. The play is based on a book by Michelle Kholes  Brooks and Kelly Younger.

“We are so excited to present this fun comedy,” Carolyn Tabor, Program Director at the library, said. “We always enjoy partnering with other organizations in Delaware to bring fun programs to Milford. This is a free community service presentation and all are welcome to attend.”

“Kalamazoo” is a quirky comedy about two older people who meet online, decide to meet for dinner and wake up in a motel room the next morning. Irving is an outgoing Jewish man while Peg is a naïve Irish Catholic, creating a couple that are complete opposites yet seem to have similar interests. Both had long, happy marriages and have been widowed, making both of them leery of commitment. Yet Irving has the belief that no one is “too old to be young.”

“Although the play focuses on two older people, the message sent should resonate with younger people as well,” Tabor said. “It is a story of hopefulness, forgetting the past, fighting off those who are not supportive and finding happiness.”

The presentation stars Chuck Rafferty and Lori Ann Johnson. It is directed by Gina Schuck. Registration to attend the presentation can be completed at https://delawarelibraries.libcal.com/event/10665263.
