We’d like to officially announce the second production of our 67th Season. It is the family comedy, “In-Laws, Outlaws, and Other People (Who Should Be Shot)” by Steve Franco. The show premieres on Friday, January 9th at 8:00 p.m.
Tom Douglas (Mike Gavanus) is home on Christmas Eve with his daughter Beth (Carolyn Dixon) preparing for a holiday dinner. First, a visit from a nosey neighbor, Mrs. Drapper (Gloria Pinsker) barges in unannounced. Their in-laws, Bud (Paul McCarthy), his wife Bunny (Debbie Lewis) and their daughter Tracey (Natalie Smith) are the first guests to arrive and they are a handful. Minutes later Uncle Leo (Steve Niles) and Aunt Rose (Carole Gettmann) are at the front door full of opinions and stories. The “In-Laws” are at the party.
Tony (Matt Nitchke) and Vinnie (Kevin Christian) are the “Outlaws”. They are two bubbling crooks who just robbed a local store. Since their car won’t start, they need a place to hide out. They make their way into the party and take everyone hostage. However, the family does everything BUT act like hostages. Mrs. Draper (Gloria Pinsker) drops by to annoy Tom. Two teenage neighbors, Paul (Tyler Sanderson) and Emily (Laura John) join the party along with their mother, Mrs. Wakowski (Valerie Carson). Tom’s wife Janet (Ronit Adini) and a local cop (Tim Odom) try to make sense of the whole thing.
Fran Carroll whose past efforts includes “Drop Dead!” and “Four Weddings and An Elvis” directs the show. Assisting is Keith Maliszewski who performed in this past summer’s production of “She Kills Monsters”.
“In-Laws, Outlaws and Other People (Who Should Be Shot)” opens on Friday, January 9th, 2015 with an 8:00 p.m. curtain. Tickets are only $15. The show runs the next three weekends in January. There are two Sunday matinees on January 11th and January 18th at 2:00 p.m.
There’s been a lot going on at the theater lately. You’re going to notice some nice new additions to the lobby. But we’re possibly most excited to announce that we’re now accepting credit cards at the box office! So come on by and see what we’ve done with the place.
