The very first show performed at the Limelight 25 years ago, “I Ought To Be In Pictures,” is being performed through May 14 at the Limelight Theatre, 11 Old Mission Ave., St. Augustine. There will also be a special fundraising show on Friday, May 12,  to benefit the ROWITA Jr. Fellowship Fund, a scholarship for graduating female high school seniors who wish to continue their studies in the arts.  Tickets are $26 for adults,
$24 for seniors, $20 for military and students, $10 student rush (30 minutes before each performance).

The Neil Simon play tells the story of a 19-year-old New Yorker who moves to Hollywood to become an actress and find her father, a screenwriter.  As she and her father confront a series of hilarious obstacles and the plot takes some surprising twists and turns, the relationship between father and daughter changes and grows and the play becomes a warm exploration of that relationship. The play was originally produced on Broadway in 1980 and was made into a film in 1982, starring Walter Matthau, Ann-Margret, and Dinah Manoff.

Cast: Libby, Stephanie Santiago; Steffy, Francesca Bellavista; Herb, Roger Lowe.

Performance times: Thursdays through Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m.
