The comedy written by Joey Ouellette takes place in a counselor’s office where mistaken identities lead to many amusing and awkward situations.
Advance tickets at $5 per adult and $4 for seniors/students will be available starting Saturday (Dec. 8) at Graham Florist, Ott & McHenry Pharmacy and Tina’s Hallmark. They are also available online at www.bradfordlittletheatre.com or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. on Jan.18 & 19, and 2 p.m. Jan. 20.
“This show will be performed with script in hand,” director Kristin Asinger said. “Audience members will experience everything that a traditional play offers, except for the actors delivering their lines from memory. With only five rehearsals, the cast members will not be asked to memorize lines; they will read from the script as they act out the scenes. Although the special pricing offers an entertaining comedy at a great rate, the laughs encountered will be priceless.”
In the play, after a traveling vacuum cleaner salesman arrives in the marriage counselor’s office, Tiger and Susan burst in the room, arguing non-stop. The meek salesman finds himself unable to get a word in edgewise. Things continue to get complicated when assorted lovers, former spouses and others arrive in the office.
As the group sorts through their difficulties and emotions begin to settle, a man with a grudge storms in threatening to kill the marriage counselor and everyone else in his way.
Asinger, who has directed two dinner theater shows for BLT and co-directed Kiwanis Kapers this year, noted that the play is not suitable for young children, but is comparable to a movie PG rating.
The cast will be announced after tryouts Jan. 5 and 7 at the BLT office, 79 Main St. For more information, people may check the BLT website or Facebook page.
