Del Mar resident to appear in ‘Leaving Iowa,’ a comedy about family and vacations

PowPac, Poway’s Community Theatre will present Leaving Iowa, written by Tim Clue and Spike Manton, opening on Friday, June 22, and running through Sunday, July 22.

“Leaving Iowa” opens on Friday, June 22, and runs through Sunday, July 22.

Told in flashback, Leaving Iowa is a hilarious sentimental comedy about a journalist who returns to the family homestead in Winterset, Iowa, to find a final resting place for his father’s ashes, only to discover that the property is now a grocery store. Not wanting to tell his mother and sister that he has failed in his mission, he sets out on a road trip to find the proper alternative resting place for his father’s ashes, all the while reliving the summer vacations he spent as a boy, trapped in the family station wagon en route to uninteresting historical sites with a well-meaning but naïve father. With a generous dollop of humor and a heart as big as the Midwest, Leaving Iowa shows us that the journey really is as important as the destination. This show is guaranteed to keep you laughing and will make you remember the childhood vacations you vowed to forget.*

The cast includes Nathan Boyer as Don, Christine Gatlin as Sis, Cheryl Warner as Mom, Sam Warner as Dad, with Del Mar’s Bud Emerson, Evan Jones and Pati Reynolds playing multiple memorable characters that the family encountered on various road trips. Leaving Iowa is directed by Keith Anderson and produced by Mary Anderson and Dorothy Courtney. Seats are $18 general admission and $15 for seniors and students. Tickets may be purchased by calling the box office at 858-679-8085 or e-mailing boxoffice@powpac.org. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. For more information, visit www.powpac.org.
