“Yonkers” details the struggles of two teenaged brothers, Jay and Arty, growing up in 1942 New York. Their mother has just died following a lengthy illness, and their deadbeat father must take on a traveling sales job to pay for the medical bills. So the two boys are left with their stern, straight talking german grandmother Kurnitz, their harebrained Aunt Bella, and an uncle named Louie with ties to the mafia. At first Jay and Arty think their new situation is a complete, neverending nightmare of strict rules and boredom. But soon, the family antics ensue and the boys grow up in the company of odd characters. Lessons are learned, family bonds closer, and the boys are forever changed - for the better.
General admission to the show is $15, while students and seniors are $12. For more information, visit www.BAPshows.com or call 706-483-6541.
