Casual dress is fine. If our June Gloom continues, bring a sweater.

Description

Some Like It Hot meets Twelfth Night in Ken Ludwig’s delightful madcap comedy,Leading Ladies_.

_ In Leading Ladies, slapstick goofiness and scrambled Shakespeare make for a hilarious romp about mistaken identities, human foibles and loves lost and found. Role reversal gets a new twist and a side of laughs when two down-on-their-luck Shakespearean actors dress as women in a plot to con a dying woman out of her millions. Interweaving inside jokes about the stage, thespians and the Bard himself, Ludwig turns the play within a play model into a farcical statement about art and appearances.

David Engel and John J. Joseph star as Leo and Jack, with Jamison Lingle as Meg; Lyndsi LaRose as Audrey; Katherine McKalip as Florence; Daniel Lench as Duncan; Corey Craig as Butch; and Don Oscar Smith as Doc.

Please note, there is a $10 fee to park at the venue.
