The Nerd by Prince George’s Little Theatre at the Bowie Playhouse, Aug 11-26

The Nerd
By Larry Shue
Directed by John Degnan
August 11 – 26, 2017

Prince George’s Little Theatre at the Bowie Playhouse

Now an aspiring young architect in Terre Haute, Indiana, Willum Cubbert has often told his friends about the debt he owes to Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam. He has written to Rick to say that, as long as he is alive, “you will have somebody on Earth who will do anything for you”—so Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his thirty-fourth birthday party. But his delight soon fades as it becomes apparent that Rick is a hopeless “nerd”—a bumbling oaf with no social sense, little intelligence and less tact. And Rick stays on and on, his continued presence among Willum and his friends leading to one uproarious incident after another, until the normally placid Willum finds himself contemplating violence — a dire development which, happily, is staved off by the surprising “twist” ending of the play.

Tickets for all shows: $22 Adults, $17 Seniors/18 & Under

The Man Who Came to Dinner by Prince George’s Little Theatre at the Bowie Playhouse, Dec 1-16

The Man Who Came to Dinner
By George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart
Directed by Keith Brown
December 1 – 16, 2017

Prince George’s Little Theatre at the Bowie Playhouse

Description: Sheridan Whiteside, critic, lecturer, wit, radio orator, intimate friend of the great and near great, met his Waterloo in the shape of a small piece of ice on the doorstep of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest W. Stanley, of Mesalia, Ohio, while trekking across the country on his annual lecture tours. Result: the idol of the air waves rests until further notice in the home of the surprised Mr. and Mrs, Stanley. Possibility: Christmas may be postponed this year. So runs the lead article in the Christmas 1939 issue of Time magazine. Whiteside turns the Stanley household upside down, forcing everyone in town to cater to his egotistical demands. Meanwhile, his beloved secretary has given her notice after falling in love with a local reporter, and Whiteside must engage every weapon in his considerable arsenal of guile and manipulation to keep her in his employ—including blackmail, deceit, and the intervention of a femme fatale actress Lorraine Sheldon and the elegant British wit of playwright Beverly Carlton. A three-ring circus of machinations and celebrity appearances ensues.

Tickets for all shows: $22 Adults, $17 Seniors/18 & Under

After meeting on a train, they attemp to work together, only to find that this small French town isn’t big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement; the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress Christine Colgate, wins; and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, singing along, and guessing to the very end!
