'Sylvia' shows continue at New World

GOSHEN — For Kate and Greg, this is something new. It’s also the current production at Goshen’s New World Arts.

The second-weekend run of shows for “Sylvia” gets underway tonight at Art House, 211 S. Main St., home to the New World theater. Showtimes are today and Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday at 3 p.m. Tickets are available at Better World Books along South Main Street and online at www.newworldarts.org.

“Sylvia” director Jenni Sears outlined the play.

“It’s about a couple, Kate and Greg, who have just moved into an apartment after their children have gone off to college,” she said. “Greg finds a dog in the park that he brings home, and the dog kind of becomes a piece of contention between him and his wife.”

“It’s definitely a comedy, but there are some sentimental touches in it,” Sears said of “Sylvia.” “It’s a fun show.”

The dog’s name tag indicates the animal’s name is Sylvia. Anika Roth portrays her in the New World production.

“(Sylvia) does talk some of her own, and maybe some of what is projected onto her by Greg and Kate,” Sears said.

Sears is no stranger to the New World stage. About a year ago, she performed in “Early One Evening at the Rainbow Bar & Grill.” In May, she portrayed one of the characters in “God of Carnage.” “Sylvia” marks her first time directing a New World show.

“It’s been a fun experience. It’s definitely been a learning experience,” Sears said with a laugh. “It’s been fun to be in charge and to kind of play, and play along with the actors and really learn from the experience.”

Sears said the first run of shows went well, and good audiences have turned out for “Sylvia.”

“...There’s a lot of energy,” she said. “We’re excited about having more performances this weekend.”

In addition to Roth, the “Sylvia” cast includes Brad Mazick as Greg, Elise Graber Yoder as Kate and Ellyn Church in the roles of Tom, Phyillis and Leslie.
