7:30-9pm, ”Four Old Broads” thru Oct 15, 2023 $17, 1705 Franklin St, Michigan City, footlightplayers.org, 219- 874-4035.
The Footlight Players will present a fresh new comedy, FOUR OLD BROADS written by Leslie Kimbell, October 6-8th, 2023 and the following weekend October 12th – 15th, 2023. Director Joe Blanchard assisted by Bobbi Ann Lauritsen has cast seven of this area’s finest actors and an award-winning crew to bring this side-splitting geriatric comedy to life.
The story takes place at the Magnolia Place Retirement Center where Beatrice desperately wants to go on the Sassy Seniors Cruise through the Caribbean with her bestie Eaddy . Unfortunately, things have not been pleasant since nurse Pat began working there. The newest resident, Imogene suddenly has memory loss, Maude when not binge-watching “Search For Love”, her favorite soap opera, is obsessed with planning her own funeral. Sam , 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 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.
