The Waterville Opera House will show the National Theatre’s performance of “Of Mice and Men” sat 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 3.

Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee James Franco and Tony Award nominee Chris O’Dowd star in the hit Broadway production, filmed on stage by National Theatre Live. This landmark revival of Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck’s play is a powerful portrait of the American spirit and a heartbreaking testament to the bonds of friendship.

Adapted from his own classic novel, John Steinbeck’s “Of Mice and Men” is an essential adventure, an inspirational portrait of the American spirit and a heartbreaking testament to the bonds of friendship. “Of Mice and Men” tells the story of George (James Franco) and Lennie (Chris O’Dowd), an unlikely pair of friends drifting from job to job across the farms and fields of California, holding fast to their dream of one day having an acre of land they can call their own.

“Of Mice and Men” is directed by Tony Award, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circles award winner Anna D. Shapiro (Broadway’s August: Osage County) and features Leighton Meester (Country Strong, Gossip Girl) and Tony Award winner Jim Norton (The Seafarer).

Tickets cost $15 for adults, $13 for seniors. Tickets can be purchased 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday on location, by calling 873-7000, or visit www.operahouse.org.
