A hilarious story of a theatre group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty authoress who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show. Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal and the final act is the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does. When the authoress decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax to a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter.
The cast is:
Aggie Manville (stage manager and prompter) – Katy Walker
Gerry Dunbar (the community theatre director) – Cliff Keen, Jr.
Henry Benish (“Lord Dudley” – a character actor) – Scott Nesmith
Polly Benish (“Lady Margaret” – a character actress) – Debbie Morgette
Marla “Smitty” Smith (“Doris the maid” – a supporting player) – Victoria Boyce
Saul Watson (“Doctor Rex Forbes – a Villain) – David Bowman
Billy Carewe (“Stephen Sellers”- a Juvenile) – Thomas Shaw
