Wetumpka Depot Players present LAST OF THE RED HOT LOVERS
The Wetumpka Depot Players are ushering in warmer days with Neil Simon's classic comedy, Last of the Red Hot Lovers. Opening April 27, the play invites audiences to the "groovy" and "out of sight" days of the swinging sixties!
The play centers around middle- aged Barney Cashman, a seafood restaurant entrepreneur who is looking for love in all the wrong places. From Elaine, a chain smoking woman who likes men and whiskey, to Bobbi Michele, an over the top young actress, and finally Jeannette an uptight and staunch moralist, poor Barney fails miserably as a Don Juan. Audiences will love this comedy with a surprising resolution.
"This is a laugh a minute Neil Simon classic that our audiences will love, " said director, Tom Salter. " Everyone will be able to relate to the richly drawn characters including poor Barney, who just wants to be loved and accepted. He has three chances to be the casanova he longs to be but each tryst becomes more complicated and hilarious than the one before. I am surrounded by an amazing cast and crew who is making the retro world of of 1969 come to life on the Depot stage. The cast features Will Webster, Leslie Blackwell, Leanna Wallace and Chantel Oakley."
Show dates are April 27-29, May 4-7, and 11-13. Tickets ( $12/$15) are available by calling 334.868.1440 or wetumpkadepot.com. The box office is located at 300 S Main Street in the heart of historic downtown Wetumpka.
