For some reason, “backstage follies” are always a popular topic for farcical theater productions. From the bumbling mechanicals led by Peter Quince in Shakespeare’s Midsummer’s Night Dream, to the much more recent drunken mishaps of “Noises Off,” audiences apparently enjoy watching seemingly inept characters trying to put on a show.  Thebes Players will continue this tradition by presenting Play On!, written by Rick Abbott and directed by Matt Tawney, on April 16, 17, 18, 22, and 23 at Cherry Creek Elementary School in Lowell, MI.

The story involves a “bad” theater group trying to put on a Victorian murder mystery, Murder Most Foul.  Unfortunately, the playwright keeps changing the script on them (even 3 days before the production!) and hilarity ensues as the already overstressed actors reach a breaking point.

The funny theatre group will indeed bring this unique comedic experience to the appreciative dinner theater crowds on April 16, 17, 22, and 23, with dinner at 6:30 p.m. and the show at 7:30 p.m.  April 18 will be a matinee, with a 1:00 p.m. dinner and the show at 2:00 p.m.  Dinner/show tickets are $23 in advance.  There is a group rate of $20 per dinner/show ticket for groups of 12 or more (not available with any other offer).  Show tickets only are $8 in advance and $10 at the door (those people not dining can arrive 30 minutes before start of show).   Please call the Lowell Area Arts Council at (616) 897-8545 or visit them on the web at www.lowellartscouncil.org for more information and to purchase tickets.
