Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company) is pleased to present LOST GIRLS by John Pollono.  This exquisite piece will have only six performances - January 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, & 19.  All performances will be at 8:00pm except Sunday, January 13th that will be at 2:30pm.  All performances will be at ETC, 2317 Mechanic in Galveston.

Pollono's comic-drama finds Maggie as she prepares to go to work as a clerk in an outlet store.  Maggie shares her home in Manchester, New Hampshire with her sixteen year-old daughter, Erica and her mother, Linda.  As she leaves for work a few days before Christmas, she walks out into a snow storm to find her car missing.   Her ex-husband and Erica's father, Lou, a state trooper arrives with his new 'perfect' wife Penny to help Maggie with the reports.  Having this complicated group of family dynamics in one place reaches a level of hysteria when they realize that Erica is the one who has taken the car and not gone to school that morning.  It's a simple premise that Mr. Pollono develops into a beautifully written piece exploring several relevant themes.

"I absolutely love this play," says Kim Mytelka, director.  "Mr. Pollono creates real people who are complex and flawed.   SMALL ENGINE REPAIR was such a great experience for us all; I was thrilled to be able to work with LOST GIRLS because he took the same city and some of the residual themes but this time explored those ideas through a female perspective."  "With a script this great, all I needed was to find six strong actors.  And I guarantee that the audience will be blown away as they bring this script to life!"

The brilliant cast consists of Ellen Dyer (Maggie), Robin Schaefer (Linda), John Carraro (Lou), Julie Fontenot (Penny), Sophia Carraro (Erica), and Xavier Lehew (Scooter).  The scenic designer is Tom Boone.  Lights are designed by Lisa Miller and sound is designed by Jennifer Daugherty.  Production stage manager is Allison O'Rourke.

"It's a really great show!  You absolutely need to see it!," says Mytelka.  "But Mardi Gras season is upon us, so there are only six performances."  Tickets are $30.00 for adults and $25.00 for students and senior citizens.  Tickets may be purchased at

ETC does offer special rates for groups of ten or more.  For more information about group rates, please call our box office at 409-762-3556. This production is not recommended for children.
