The Breckenridge Backstage Theatre and the Summit County Veterans Service Office are partnering to treat local veterans to an afternoon of theatrical comedy. Veterans are offered free tickets for the matinee performance of the play "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike" at 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 6.

"We're excited to extend our appreciation to our veterans by inviting them to this hilarious production," Summit County Veterans Service officer Tom Byledbal said in a statement.

Christopher Durang's "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike" was the winner of the 2013 Tony Award for best play. Set in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, the play follows siblings Vanya and Sasha through a boisterous family drama when their sister Masha arrives with a new boyfriend and a big announcement.

Veterans are welcome to see the Aug. 6 matinee performance at the Backstage Theatre for free; their significant others can receive a discounted ticket price of $24. Tickets, available on a first-come-first-served basis, can be reserved by calling the Breckenridge Backstage Theatre at (970) 453-0199.

Prior to the show, the Veterans Service Office will provide free appetizers and soft drinks for all attendees, beginning at 1 p.m. Byledbal will give a very brief presentation on available veterans' services.

The Breckenridge Backstage Theatre is located at 121 S. Ridge St., Breckenridge.
