Patty Duke for the holidays

In November at ARt, Patty Duke will star in *Together Again for the First Time,* a comedy set in Spokane and written by Reed McColm. The Nov. 24-Dec. 17 production will be directed by Actors Rep Artistic Director Michael Weaver.

McColm -- who used to write for Star Trek: The Next Generation, St. Elsewhere and other TV shows -- has seen his dysfunctional-family play receive 48 previous productions. But this will be the West Coast premiere -- and the movie begins filming this spring.

Duke (who has won two Golden Globes, four Emmys and an Oscar) will play a Martha Stewart figure, newly remarried. Audrey and her new husband Max are eager to host a perfect Christmas with their grown children from previous marriages. Lots of blended-family bickering ensues.

Unless you buy season tickets for ART's '06-'07 season, you won't be able to purchase single tickets for this holiday-season Patty Duke production until Sept. 25.
