This quirky comedy, written by Detroit Free Press columnist Mitch Albom of Tuesdays with Morrie fame (the bestselling memoir of all time), Duck Hunter Shoot Angel centers on two good ‘ol’ boys, Duane (Michael Hays) and Duwell (Bruce Bennett), who believe they have shot a celestial being while duck hunting. Word of their fantastic story reaches the editor (Martin Underhill) of the Weekly World and Globe in New York City and he quickly dispatches one of his reporters, Sandy (Mark Boyd), a cynical and self-professed writer of "crap" with his less than eager photographer (Sidney Sauseda II) to go down South and get the scoop. The themes of redemption, race, media and north vs. south are all explored in hilarious fashion, and the show features a surprise ending that few theatergoers see coming.
Directed by the award winning Rick Dethlefsen, this production also features Kellie Stonebrook, Rachelle Garyett, Breckan Erdman and Gary Mitchell as ‘the voice’.
Shows are scheduled on Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. at the Ledges Playhouse in Fitzgerald Park, Grand Ledge.For ticket information, call 318-0579 or visit the website www.overtheledge.org
