    7:30-9pm, ”Four Old Broads” thru Oct 16, $17, 1705 Franklin St, Michigan City, footlightplayers.org 874-4035.

  The Footlight Players will present a fresh new comedy, FOUR OLD BROADS written by Leslie Kimbell, October 7, 8, 9 and the following weekend October 13, 14, 15, 16. Director Robert W Komendera assisted by Joe Blanchard has cast seven of this area’s finest actors and an award-winning crew to bring this side-splitting geriatric comedy to life. The set is designed by Jim Snyder and dressed by Joy Davidson. Alayna Lauritsen will design the sound and Declan Rice will design the lights. Sharon Kienitz will do her magic as the costume designer and Kathy Chase is doing hair and make-up. The production is being managed by Laura Meyer.

 

The story takes place at the Magnolia Place Retirement Center where Beatrice (Laura Meyer) desperately wants to go on the Sassy Seniors Cruise through the Caribbean with her bestie Eaddy (Leslie Evans). Unfortunately, things have not been pleasant since nurse Pat (Kathy Chase) began working there. The newest resident, Imogene (Susie Richter) suddenly has memory loss, Maude (Diana Hirsch) when not binge-watching “Search For Love”, her favorite soap opera, is obsessed with planning her own funeral. Sam (Tom Le Donne), a retired Elvis impersonator, is the resident Casanova. A mystery unfolds with lots of laughs as the gals try to find out why so many of the residents have gone to “The Dark Side” and what really happened to Dr. Head. Maybe the new young nurse’s aide Ruby Sue (Cindi Reyes) can help them figure it all out. Hilarity ensues as Imogene goes undercover and Maude gets entered into the Miss Magnolia Senior Citizen Pageant to throw the powers that be off their trail. If they can solve the mystery, they may finally get to go on the cruise.
