The Woodland Opera House will present the Bernard Slade play “Tribute,” beginning Friday, March 1, and running through Sunday, March 24.

“Tribute” is the funny yet touching tale of Scottie Templeton, a charming, irresponsible fellow. A sometime Broadway press agent and former scriptwriter, he’s everyone’s friend, nobody’s hero and a great womanizer who’s managed to live more than 50 years without taking anything seriously, including love, marriage and fatherhood. Life’s been one continuous gag.

But at 51, he finds the script’s been rewritten as a tragedy: He is fatally ill. His son Jud, alienated by years of neglect, comes to visit. Scottie’s one concern is to make friends with his son, for everyone else adores Scottie, including his ex-wife, his friend and boss, and his doctor.

After a bitter, revealing confrontation, father and son are reconciled. And it is Jud who gets Scottie to agree to be re-hospitalized for treatment and then organizes a giant tribute to his father in a theater.

The cast includes Bob Cooner as Scottie, Brent Randolph as Jud, Walt Thompson as Lou, Julie Bock as Maggie, Leasa Randolph as Salley, Georgann Wallace as Dr. Gladys and Jen Smuda-Cotter as Hilary. The show is directed by Dean Shellenberger.

“Tribute” contains language with mild sexual innuendo. It is not recommended for children under 16.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. There is an additional matinée at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 16. Reserved tickets are $25 for adults, $23 for seniors and $15 for the balcony. Tickets are available at 530-666-9617 or www.woodlandoperahouse.org.
