The drama, “Rabbit Hole,” running from March 11 through March 26 at Magic Circle Theatre, presents a broken-hearted family trying to learn to live beyond a life-shattering automobile accident that took the life of an only child.

Directed by Dave Olson and Assistant Director Stasia Allyn, the actors use bitingly humorous dialogue (including adult contemporary language) as they portray a New York family trying desperately to restore the shreds of their once-happy life.

Rabbit Hole opens March 11 for three weekends of performances: Fridays and Saturdays March 11 and 12, 18 and 19 and 25 and 26 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees March 13 and 20 at 2 p.m. Online tickets sales for the general public open March 8, 2016, at General public ticket sales by telephone at (970) 249-7838, or in person at the box office, 420 S. 12th St., Montrose, beginning March 8 from 2 to 5 p.m., Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
