Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee's madcap comedy, Auntie Mame, which opened the Solana Beach, CA, North Coast Repertory Theatre's 1998-99 season June 11, will conclude its run on July 26. North Coast's new Artistic Director Sean Murray directs Sandra Ellis-Troy in the title role.

Lanford Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning Talley's Folly (Aug. 6-Sept. 13) will follow. The work is the second in Wilson's Talley family trilogy and examines the course of love between Sally Talley and Matt Friedman.

Bernard Pomerance's Tony-winning tale of conformity and tolerance, The Elephant Man, fills the third slot (Sept. 24-Nov. 1).

Another Pulitzer Prize winner, Alfred Uhry's Driving Miss Daisy (Nov. 12-Dec. 27), is North Shore's fourth offering. Next in line is Ron Campbell in Carol Wolf's one-man show The Thousandth Night. In the production, Campbell plays 38 characters, each with a tale to tell.

The season concludes with Neil Simon's first success, Come Blow Your Horn (Feb. 25-Apr. 11), and Beth Henley's Abundance (Apr. 22-May 30). The latter is a tall tale set in the West about two mail-order brides who find their lives leading in opposite directions. For information on any of the above productions, call (888) 776-6278.
