10/27 - 11/5 - FARCE OF HABIT - Starlight Dinner Theatre
From the authors that brought Starlight Theatre the Futrelle Sisters trilogy, Hallelujah Girls, Red Velvet Cake War, and Funny Little Thing Called Love, Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten have written another hilarious farce. “This show is so much fun, that I knew we had to bring it to our stage” stated Artistic Director, Linda Granger.
This Southern-fried comedy is centered around the Reel 'Em Inn, a rustic fishing lodge in the Ozarks of Arkansas. Comic fireworks explode when the Wilburn family (Chris Goeckel, Angela Dill, Jan Ross, Sean McKeon, Kylie Rae Bisel-Densmore) is hosting a strange assortment of guests over a stormy weekend: a snobbish English talk-show host (James Warren Houska), a hapless bow-tied Midwesterner (Bob Robinson), a group of nuns housed in the barn (one of them played by Diana Lett), a vengeful ex-wife (Jean Burk) and, lurking among them all, a serial killer. The raucous action, directed by Michael Hays, is typical of a “four-door” farce, even when the plot doesn’t depend quite so much on those quick entries and exits.
"We hope that this incredibly zany comedy, following a long list of successes from the amazing Jones, Hope, Wooten triumvirate, will have the audience falling out of their chairs with tears of laughter in their eyes." stated Director Michael Hays.
