#253 – Stage Door Players in Dunwoody Presents the Regional Premiere of “Unnecessary Farce” – One More Weekend – Now Through Sunday, October 17, 2010
It’s no secret that I support the arts and local theatre, and I have a special place in my heart for theatres in Atlanta in which I’ve worked over the years. Stage Door Players in one such theatre – you can always count on Producing Artistic Director Robert Egizio to offer up a variety of high-quality plays and musicals to keep you entertained all year long. Unnecessary Farce is no exception.
Two cops. Three crooks. Eight doors. Stage Door’s production is the regional premiere of this fast-paced farce on crime dramas, and was written by Paul Slade Smith and directed by Robert Egizio. Set in two adjoining hotel rooms, the action is non-stop from beginning to end. You’re never quite sure who’s in which room- and neither are the characters on stage. The ensemble cast consists of Larry Davis, Carrie Walrond Hood, John Markowski, Alan Phelps, Holly Stevenson, Annie York and Jacob York. Ready? Set? Laugh!
The production runs for just one more weekend – through October 17, 2010. Showtimes are Friday and Saturday evening at 8:00 PM, and Sunday afternoon matinee at 2:30. For tickets, you should visit the Stage Door Players website; tickets are available online through tix.com. For questions, you can call the Box Office at 770-396-1726.
Stage Door Players, Dunwoody’s only professional theatre company, was founded in 1974 as a Community Improvement Project of the Dunwoody Woman’s Club. The intimate space of the theatre, which holds just around 100 patrons, makes seeing a show at State Door an experience like no other. With stadium seating only four rows deep that borders two sides of the stage, there’s not a bad seat in the house and patrons can truly feel like they are a part of the show. See you at the Stage Door!
