The Pleasant Grove Players will present performances of the comedy, "Lucky Stiff," by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty on October 19th – November 5th (Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Monday evenings as well as a Saturday matinees on November 3rd) in the Christeson Little Theater on the first floor of the PG City Library, 30 E. Center St. The evening show will begin at 7:30 p.m. The Saturday matinee will begin at 3:00 p.m.
Based on the novel, The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo by Michael Butterworth, Lucky Stiff is an offbeat, hilarious murder mystery farce, complete with mistaken identities, six million bucks in diamonds and a corpse in a wheelchair. The story revolves around an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed in passing his uncle off as alive, Harry Witherspoon stands to inherit $6,000,000. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn... or else his uncle's gun-toting ex!
Tickets are $12 for adults and $11 for students and seniors. Individual tickets are $1 less for matinees. Tickets can be purchased on line at pgplayers.com and, if available, at the door. All seating is reserved. There is a 2 for 1 ticket offer (promo code “TWOFER”) on the opening Friday, Oct. 19, performance. Discounts may not be combined.
