On Stage This Weekend

   There are only two shows taking the stage this weekend - but they're "choice!"

   Here's the rundown:

- Company - Actors Guild of Parkersburg presents the musical by Stephen Sondheim on April 28, 29 and May 5 and 6 at 8 p.m. and April 30 at 2:30 p.m. at 724 Market Street in Parkersburg. Tickets are $18 for adults and $16 for students and senior citizens. 

- The Robber Bridegroom - Jenny Wiley Theatre presents the play on April 28 and 29 at 7:30 p.m. at 218 Second Street in Pikeville, Ky. Set in eighteenth century Mississippi, the show follows Jamie Lockhart, a rascally robber of the woods, as he courts Rosamund, the only daughter of the richest planter in the country. The proceedings go awry, however, thanks to a case of double-mistaken identity. Throw in an evil stepmother intent on Rosamund's demise, her pea-brained henchman and a hostile talking head-in-a-trunk, and you have a rollicking country romp.

   So go see a show!
