5/4-12 - One Slight Hitch brings laughs to Starlight Dinner Theatre
From award-winning stand-up comedian and “Daily Show” correspondent Lewis Black comes a hilarious play about how even the perfect plans can go awry with “One Slight Hitch.” “This play is reminiscent of ‘The Philadelphia Story,’ which I starred in with Ledges Playhouse in Grand Ledge,” said Director Mona Gille. “I hope our audiences enjoy stepping back in time to enjoy this fun and fast-paced show.”
It’s 1981 in suburban Ohio, and Courtney (Rebecca Williams) is getting married to logical, well-to-do Harper (Joe Clark). Courtney’s mother, Delia (Linda Granger), is trying to make sure everything is perfect for the big day, while father Doc (Chris Klaver) is concerned with his old fishing gear and his treasured azaleas. Along for the ride are Courtney’s two sisters: 16-year-old P.B. (Monica Holland) who spends most of her time jamming out to her Walkman, and 20-something Melanie (Carin McEvoy), who’s casual when it comes to sex but serious when it comes to drinking. Everything’s on schedule until an unexpected guest arrives: Courtney’s ex-boyfriend, Ryan (Tyler Frease ), coincidentally in the neighborhood and unaware of the impending nuptials.
“We have a delightful cast made up of actors new to the stage, some studying theatre, and some veterans,” Director Mona Gille added. “All are working hard to bring you a great performance.”
