If you happen to love It Happened One Night, the Frank Capra classic starring Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable, you’ve probably learned to ignore all the patriarchal annoyances (father’s ownership of daughter, weird Stockholm syndrome overtones) and love it for its endearingly screwball plot lines and trope-setting scenes. It wasn’t the first madcap romance, but it set the bar high, inspiring countless romantic comedies and cementing its place as a cultural milestone.
Richardson’s Core Theatre, 518 W. Arapaho Road, lovingly revives the timeless tale of a young heiress on the run from her father in its stage adaptation of the beloved 1934 film. In it, Ellie Andrews has defied her dear old daddy, only to meet her match in a charming, unemployed journalist. The production follows Ellie’s high jinks on a road trip that leads to the altar, with a few twists and turns along the way. Bask in the nostalgia with shows at 8 p.m. Thursday, June 8, through Saturday, June 10, and a matinee performance at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 11. Tickets are $5 to $20 at thecoretheatre.org.
At Oxford at Lake Worth Apartments in Fort Worth, Texas, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
