Tehachapi Community Theatre's "Things My Mother Taught Me" offers a night of laughter over familiar family situations ... how can we help but laugh at ourselves? Mother takes a realistic look at the relationships between parents and their adult children and we realize that just sometimes the best lessons are passed on without knowing it. This funny and touching comedy will make you laugh out loud and fall in love all over again. Olivia Keegan (Emily Stults) and Gabe Lawson (Kendric Bertram) just moved to Chicago, but moving day doesn't go exactly as planned and things become slightly more complicated when all of their parents show up, unannounced, to help! Olivia's parents, Karen Keegan (Jackie Walters) and Carter Keegan (Bert Roper) and Gabe's parents are Lydia Lawson, (Sue First) and Wyatt Lawson (Guy Martin) are only there to help... but can a two bedroom apartment contain all of the love, laughs, worry and wisdom that's about to happen? Tamar Asatryan rounds out the comedic cast playing Max Mirowski, their new building super. Performances of TCT's "Things My Mother Taught Me" continue Friday and Saturday evenings March 20, 21, 27 and 28, at 7:30 p.m., doors opening at 7 p.m., and Sunday matinees are March 22 and 29, at 2 p.m., doors opening at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are available online at tctonstage.com and at TCT ticket outlets.
