Doily Box

 

As a new bride, Aunt Edna moved into the small home on her husband’s ranch. She put a shoebox on a shelf in her closet and asked her husband never to touch it.

For 50 years Uncle Jack left the box alone, until Aunt Edna was old and dying. One day when he was putting their affairs in order, he found the box again and thought it might hold something important.

Opening it, he found two doilies and $82,500 in cash. He took the box to her and asked about the contents. “My mother gave me that box the day we married,” she explained. “She told me to make a doily to help ease my frustrations every time I got mad at you.”

Uncle Jack was very touched that in 50 years she’d only been mad at him twice.

“What’s the $82,500 for?” he asked.

Aunt Edna smiled and said, “That’s the money I made selling the doilies.”

M*A*S*H comes to the Kent Theatre

 

ENT-MASH-the-swamp-webMarch 19-21

One of the most popular sitcoms in television history is coming to Cedar Springs this weekend, when Rogue River Community Theatre Company presents the stage version of M*A*S*H.

Based on the successful TV series that aired between Sept. 1972 and Feb. 1983, it brings back the comedic team of doctors and nurses stationed at the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in South Korea during the Korean War.

Director Lesley Nadwodnik has the credentials for the job; she’s a veteran actor and comedian. “This classic sitcom is perfect for stage,’’ she said. “There’s a lot of laughs and the audience will certainly recognize many of their favorite characters.’’

They include Capt. Benjamin Franklin “Hawkeye’’ Pierce, Major Margaret “Hotlips’’ Houlihan, the ever annoying Major Frank “Ferret Face’’ Burns, and the loveable company clerk Corporal Walter Eugene “Radar’’ O’Reilly.

“You’ll see many iconic characters along with some new favorites,’’ said John Bagin, a RRCTC board member and member of the cast.

“As an actor, it’s been great being a part of bringing this American cultural classic back to the stage,’’ Bagin said. “It’s brought back many fond memories.’’

His wife and fellow thespian Kirsten Bagin agrees. “The audience is going to love this production,’’ she said. “There is always something happening on stage—sometimes something poignant and other times downright hilarious.’’

The script and cast are almost a distraction, she concedes. “The play features a large cast and I find myself laughing through every rehearsal.’’

Production assistants will transform the Kent Theatre stage into a true-to-life MASH unit and period costumes provide an extra measure of authenticity to the two-act play, Nadwodnik said.

“A lot of work is being done on the sets; it’ll take the audience back to the original MASH 4077,’’ Nadwodnik said. “We’ve been blessed to have volunteers from the arts community in Rockford helping out. It truly is a community theatre production.’’

Those born after the show left the air—its final episode the most watched television broadcast in American history—will find plenty to love. And that comes from Jack Bagin, who was just a glimmer in his parents’ eye when the ratings gusher ended.

“When I started this show, I had no idea what MASH was,’’ he said. “I learned quickly what this show was about; it quickly communicated all the laughter and silliness to a younger generation.’’

Shows will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 19, Friday, March 20 and Saturday March 21. There will also be a matinee performance 2 p.m. Saturday.

Performances will be held at the historic Kent Theatre, 8 North Main Street in Cedar Springs.

Joining the team

 

Father Murphy walks into a pub and says to the first man he meets, “Do you want to go to heaven?”

The man said, “I do, Father.”

The priest said, “Then stand over there against the wall.”

Then the priest asked the second man, “Do you want to got to heaven?”

“Certainly, Father,” was the man’s reply.

“Then stand over there against the wall,” said the priest.

Then Father Murphy walked up to O’Toole and said, “Do you want to go to heaven?”

O’Toole said, “No, I don’t Father.”

The priest said, “I don’t believe this. You mean to tell me that when you die you don’t want to go to heaven?”

O’Toole said, “Oh, when I die, yes. I thought you were getting a group together to go right now.”

Beauty and cosmetics

After a lengthy sitting before the mirror applying the “miracle” products, she asked, “Darling, honestly, what age would you say I am?”

Looking her over carefully, Todd replied, “Judging from your skin, 20; your hair, 18; and your figure, 25.”

“Oh, you flatterer!” she gushed.

“Hey, wait a minute!” Todd interrupted.

“I haven’t added them up yet.”
