Union Street Player’s production of the comedy Morning’s at Seven includes one of the most ambitious sets ever constructed by the community theatre. Designed by Assistant Director, Anne McCullough-Kelly, the set is taking shape thanks to the faithful set construction of Jim Palmer and Pat Moriarity.

The hilarious comedy takes place in the back yards of two houses in a small midwest town c.1939. McCullough-Kelly did research on the internet to find home designs for the period along with corresponding colors. She was amazed to find that most homes of that period were pre-fabricated and sold through catalogs like Sears and Roebuck. The set crew has constructed the backs of the houses, which reach well above the curtains of the Joan Kuyper-Farver Auditorium. The set also includes a stump, a tree and two hedges – which provide staging challenges for the crew.

Plan now to see the fantastic set and attend this heart-warming comedy. Performances will be February 22-24 at 7:00 p.m. and a Sunday matinee on February 25th at 2:00 p.m.
