The Island Players presentation of “Cliffhanger,” the second play of the 2008-09 season, begins Thursday, Dec. 4, with an opening night.

The show will continue through Dec. 14, with performances at 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and at 2 p.m. Sundays. The theater is dark on Mondays.

“Cliffhanger,” by James Yaffe, is a comedy-thriller that the Atlanta Journal described as “an old-fashion thriller-chiller with some heart, heartbreak and hearty laughs.”

The cast, directed by James Thaggard, includes Rick Kopp, Laura Morales, Carl MacMichael, Vinnie Conte and Mary Jo Johnson.

The box office, 10009 Gulf Drive, Anna Maria, is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and an hour before each performance.
