Follow the siren call to Highlands Cashiers Players

The North Carolina premiere of the comedy, “Sirens,” is the Highlands Cashiers Players first play of the new season. It continues Thursday through Sunday, Aug. 25-28, at the Performing Arts Center in Highlands.

The story concerns a middle-aged couple, Sam and Rose Abrams, who take a cruise to the Greek Islands, hoping to bring a little romance back into their 25-year marriage. On this voyage, Sam and only Sam hears an irresistible melody wafting over the water and follows it to a strange destination where he encounters a siren. Sam’s adventure and its unexpected consequences when he returns home are totally entertaining.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for students and $15 a person for groups of 15 or more.  Seating is reserved, but tickets can also be purchased at the door before performances.  Call 828.526.8084 for reservations.
