Readers Theatre Plus is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to enrich the community through the arts, according to readerstheatreplus.com.
“A Nice Family Gathering,” a play written by Phil Olson, centers around the Lundeen family, who are gathering for Thanksgiving at the home of their late patriarch.
During the get-together, the late father comes back as a ghost with a mission to tell his wife of 35 years that he loved her — something he neglected to tell her while he was alive. The problem — she can’t hear or see him, and even invites a date for dinner.
Proceeds benefit Puppy Pilots, a club that raises guide dogs for the blind in Sequim and Port Angeles, according to a news release.
The club currently has four guide dog puppies-in-training, according to www.puppypilots.org.
