Coal Creek Community Theater Presents “On Borrowed Time”

Coal Creek Community Theater Presents On Borrowed Time by Paul Osborn







LOUISVILLE, CO – Coal Creek Community Theater will open their second show of their 22nd season on April 29. On Borrowed Time by Paul Osborn, directed by Lynn Fleming, will run through May 14 at the Louisville Center for the Arts. This touching fantasy tells the story of Gramps and his orphaned grandson, Pud. Gramps is idolized by his young grandson, who models his every action after the old man, but Gramps’ salty expressions and rough behavior are frowned upon by the strait-laced Aunt Demetria, who angles to gain custody of Pud and his inheritance. When Death, in the form of Mr. Brink, comes to claim Gramps, Gramps can’t bear to leave his beloved Pud to Aunt Demetria, so he outwits Death by trapping Mr. Brink in an apple tree. The resulting suspension of Death throughout the universe leads first to chaos, but ultimately to an unexpected and tender resolution to the dilemma.
