Becky’s New Car
by Steven Dietz.
Directed by: TBA

July 13 – 29, 2018

Location: Bowie Community Theatre at the Bowie Playhouse

Becky’s New Car is a hilarious screwball comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken. Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is happily married to a good man, and together they struggle to survive in a bad economy and to support their son, who lives in the basement while he works toward his degree. Becky takes a trip on the “wild side,” with a billionaire who just happens to enter the car dealership where Becky works, only to discover that her inability to say “no” has created a trunk-full of problems. How can a nice person who has done something bad get herself out of this car wreck?

General Admission – $22.00, Seniors (62+) & Students – $17.00.
Group Rates(10 or more people): General Admission, Seniors (62+), Students – $15.00.

Laughing Stock at Laurel Mill Playhouse, Jun 29-Jul 15

Laughing Stock at Laurel Mill Playhouse, Jun 29-Jul 15

Laughing Stock
by Charles Morey
Directed by Daniel Johnston
Assistant Directed by Michael Hartsfield
Produced by Maureen Rogers

Friday June 29, 2018 through Sunday July 15, 2018

Location: Laurel Mill Playhouse

LAUGHING STOCK is a hilarious backstage farce and genuinely affectionate look into the world of the theatre. When The Playhouse, a rustic New England summer theatre, schedules a repertory season of Dracula, Hamlet and Charley’s Aunt, comic mayhem ensues. We follow the well-intentioned but over-matched company from outrageous auditions to ego-driven rehearsals through opening nights gone disastrously awry to the elation of a great play well told and the comic and nostalgic season close.

“—a summer stock production of Dracula disintegrates into chaos on opening night. Gothic horror becomes high comedy amid misplaced technical cues, forgotten lines, wrong entrances and eccentric acting—the large audience howled with glee as they watched the mayhem unfold…” —Salt Lake Tribune. “LAUGHING STOCK soars as farce…” —Salt Lake City Weekly. “The delightful thing…is that Morey strikes a balance between a depiction of everything that can and usually does go wrong…and a genuinely affectionate look at the magic that holds theatre companies together…these are all type characters but Morey adeptly deepens and individualizes each one…The Dracula section and a rehearsal of Charley’s Aunt where the actors improvise being animals at dusk around an African water hole are comic high point…” —Event (Salt Lake City). “LAUGHING STOCK will indeed have you laughing in your seat if not rolling in the aisles…It’s hard to imagine anyone whose funny bone wouldn’t be tickled by this one…it’s a hoot…it’s a blast…” —Monadnock Ledger (NH). “Scene after scene, beat after beat, LAUGHING STOCK piles on the laughs…every single piece crackles with successful wit and abundant humor…virtuoso farce…” —Keene Sentinel (NH). “I cried, I choked, I fell into a coughing fit, I cried some more…can’t help but love this play.” —Nashua Telegraph (NH).

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Publishing Company. Performances run weekends from Friday June 29, 2018 through Sunday July 15, 2018 with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 for general admission.
