    WALDOBORO — Rehearsals for Karmo Sanders’ Maine island comedy Homer Bound are underway at The Waldo, in Waldoboro, for four performances in September and October. The play takes a fun, funny and sometimes sentimental look at a colorful cast of characters preparing for an overdue wedding on an island off the Maine coast.

    Written by Maine’s own Karmo Sanders, known by many Mainers as “The Marden’s Lady,” the cast – all members of the Midcoast community – includes Zora Margolis, Peter Henderson, Christine Anderson, Shari Wills, Greg Hawks, and Henry Cauffman.

    “We’re having such a good time rehearsing this play. It’s hard to get though the scenes without somebody cracking up,” said Susan Hodder, The Waldo’s Executive Director, who is also directing the play, in a news release. “The writing is fast, funny and full of Maine humor. It’s really thrilling to be bringing back a fully-staged play to The Waldo with innovative staging, sets, lighting, and a script that showcases a Maine writer.”

    Every member of this production, from the cast to the crew, is from the local area.

    “The Waldo invites everyone to come see their neighbors’ talents and remember how fun and entertaining community theatre can be,” said the Waldo.

    Evening performances are scheduled for Saturday 9/30, and Friday 10/6 and Saturday 10/7 at 7:30 p.m. A matinee performance will be held Sunday 10/1 at 3 p.m.

    Tickets are just $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

    Tickets are now on sale at thewaldotheatre.org.
