Well on its way to becoming a stage classic, this riotous farce unspools before a 1934 gala opera fundraiser, which suddenly loses its star tenor just minutes prior to curtain. This dire situation sets off a chain of disasters resulting in mistaken identities and double entendres galore, as a local impresario fumbles his way through a comedy of errors to ensure that the show does indeed go on. A smash hit on Broadway, this madcap favorite by Ken Ludwig (Moon Over Buffalo, Twentieth Century) was also nominated for more than a dozen Tony and Drama Desk Awards. Learn More

I got to be the fly on the wall with the Lyon family as they reached this pivotal event in their family life. The characters were real (I have known families similar to this), and the events were real. There was lots of laughter as the audience recognized in themselves those unflattering characteristics in the family members, and sadness as we felt their pain. The selection of these actors to portray this family was a good one, and they represented this family well. I would recommend this theater performance to all adults who enjoy good theater.
About the Ticket Supplier: Vintage TheatreVintage Theatre Productions was founded by Craig Bond and friends in August 2002, over martinis. This evening spent with friends launched our mission to bring the best quality theatre to the Front Range! We entered our space on 17th Avenue in 2008 and temained there for four years as we grew our company artistically. In March 2012 we decided to purchase our new location at 1468 Dayton St Aurora 80010, joining the Aurora Arts District.
We staged two shows the first year, nine in 2012...and now have three performance spaces under one roof with the Jeffrey Nickelson Auditiorium (145 seats), the Bond Trimble Theatre (67 Seats) and our lobby raised stage (60 seats). All areas are completely sound proofed, air conditioned, and provide a full bar service. And of course free parking!
