Lemon Bay Playhouse Presents “Senior Follies”
The Lemon Bay Playhouse announces its upcoming show, “Senior Follies”, the last production of the 2016-2017 season. The play is a comedy, written by Billy St. John and directed by Ric Goodwin. The show will run from June 7 through June 25, 2017.
Who says being old can’t be fun? The rocking is not done in chairs at the Pleasant Valley Retirement Home, especially since Howard discovered Viagra! The feisty divorcee and lovely widows who are constantly scurrying out of his reach, breathe a sigh of relief when a new resident actually seems to enjoy Howard’s advances. She turns out to be a con artist intent on fleecing Howard with the help of her husband (posing as her brother). Several residents at the Pleasant Valley Retirement Home don their sleuthing caps to unmask the imposters in their midst. Humor, romance, and mystery combine to make this a show that will have you cheering at the climax!
Ric notes that there is an old adage that comes to us from Vaudeville… “Leave them laughing”. And that is just what we have chosen to do with Senior Follies to close out our 30th season. This production has been fun to put together…fun for me, fun for the cast and crew, and finally (hopefully) fun for you, our audience.
I am reminded of a Stephen Sondheim song lyric from the musical comedy, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum:
Nothing portentous or polite
And…that is what you are in for as we perform this comedy on our stage.
Don’t miss the hilarity in this wonderful comedy by the author of “The Abduction”, “The Reunion”, and other plays.
