Tellico Community Players First Performance of 2018

Sunday, February 4th, 2018 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Tickets on sale for Tellico Players comedy Play On!

Reserved seats at $21 for the comedy Play On! are on sale on the Tellico Community Players website at www.TellicoCommunityPlayhouse.org. (Click on tickets to purchase.) Dates for this first Players performance of 2018 are Thursday through Saturday, February 22-24, and Thursday through Sunday, March 1-4. All of the shows begin at 7:30 pm except for the matinee on Sunday, March 4, which begins at 1:30 pm. Play On! is sponsored by the Sweetwater investment services firm, Fairweather Financial.

In this hilarious story directed by Sue Aukerman, a community theatre is about to produce a show called Murder Most Foul: A new “murder mystery play” with the same title as an Agatha Christie novel but with no relation whatsoever. The director, Gerry, thought producing the play was a good idea since the inexperienced playwright has agreed to let their company perform the show for no charge.

Gerry, however, had no idea what disasters awaited her: The show is hilariously amateur, the “murder mystery” plot doesn’t really have a murder, and to top it off, the playwright keeps changing the story and script only two days from its premiere! It doesn’t help that the cast is disgruntled and the playwright accidentally deletes the entire sound effect board. All of the disasters come to fruition in Act III when the company performs the actual show with hilarious mishaps at every turn. Play On! is a hilarious love letter to community theatre.

The cast includes Jean Mallett (Aggie Manville), Ku Adams (Gerry Dunbar), Doug Banister (Henry Bendish), Marlyce-Jean Dezzutti (Polly Bendish), Doris Ryan (Smitty Smith), Joel Bonnan (Saul Watson), James Dotson (Billy Crewe), Sauni Rinehart (Violet Imbry), Sue Mertens (Louise Peary), and Joan Dorsey (Phyllis Montague).

The play was written by Rick Abbot, one of several pen names for the late prolific playwright Jack Sharkey. The show’s producer is Phil Geyer.

Tickets can also be purchased with cash, check, or credit card at the Tellico Community Playhouse box office, located at 304 Lakeside Plaza in Loudon, Monday through Friday from 10 am to 2 pm February 19 through March 2.
