Newlyweds William and Betty Reddig

“Project Petoskey,” a new musical – or play with music, if you prefer – by Ann Reddig will debut at Sydney Laurence Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 18 and 19. Reddig tells the story of her parents, who were married 64 years. Her father had Alzheimer’s disease and, said the playwright, “I spent a good amount of the previous four years in Michigan helping them with their end plan.” She kept friends and family up to date via web postings, now turned into this play.

Both parents died on Jan. 3, 2012.

The cast features the talent of Susan Reilly, Van Horn Eli III, Vivian Kinnaird, John Fraser, Richard Benavides, Denice Jewell, Erick Roberts and Kelly Moss. David Haynes directs.

Tickets are available at centertix.net. But you can get a two-for-one voucher for Friday’s show by going to onceayeartheter.com by the end of Monday, Jan. 14.
