Final weekend for ‘Sylvia’ at VK Garage

“Sylvia,” (left) played by Michele VanFossen is a bit too much for “Phyllis,” (right) played by Louise Vermillion in this scene from the Playhouse 2000 production of “Sylvia,” the comedy that has three final performances in the VK Garage Theater this weekend.

The opening production in Season 2020 for Playhouse 2000, Kerrville’s Community Theater, has become a “must have” ticket. Two of last weekend’s three performances of “Sylvia” were completely sold out.

The show has three performances remaining. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 2:30 p.m. on Sunday this weekend in the VK Garage Theater.

“Sylvia,” a comedy by A.R. Gurney playing in the VK Garage Theater, uses a live actress to portray the stray dog adopted by “Greg,” who recently moved to Manhattan with career-oriented wife “Kate.” The result is a show that earns both guffaws and a few sniffles.

Those attending the show are encouraged to bring a small bag of dog or cat food to share with P2K promotional partners Kerrville Pets Alive, who have representatives available in the lobby to talk about what they’re doing to save the lives of companion animals in Kerr County.

Tickets to enjoy “Sylvia” can be purchased at the Cailloux Theater Box Office, in person or by phone at 896-9393. They are also available online at

The Cailloux City Center, including the VK Garage Theater, is managed, on behalf of the City of Kerrville, by Playhouse 2000, Inc.
