Anyone who has ever been involved in community theater will identify very strongly with the maxim "If anything can go wrong - it will." That's exactly what happens in the hilarious comedy Play On! which will be presented by the Middlebury Community Players at Town Hall Theater on February 14-17.
Dora Greven directs this uproarious play within a play. A theater group is trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from the 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 of the thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter.
Included in the cast are Kevin Commins, Kendra Gratton, Raymond Johnston, Megan Kelley, Ark Lemal, Mike Lynch, Tom Noble, Robynn Stanley, Kathleen Walls, and Matt White.
Shows are: 8pm on Thursday-Saturday, February 14-16, with a Sunday matinee at 2pm on February 17. The Sunday matinee will have American Sign Language interpretation. Tickets are $17 available at the Town Hall Theater Box Office, Monday-Saturday, noon to 5pm, 802-382-9222, or online anytime at www.townhalltheater.org
