Los Altos Stage Company to Present THE SUNSHINE BOYS, 11/21-12/15
The Los Altos Stage Company is proud to present a classic comedy about two classics of comedy. The Sunshine Boys by Neil Simon opens November 21 and runs through December 15 at the Bus Barn Theater in Los Altos.
An affectionate and hilarious look back at the golden age of vaudeville,The Sunshine Boys is the story of Lewis and Clark, two longtime comedy partners whose career and friendship came to a sudden and acrimonious end. After a decade of estrangement, Clark's nephew persuades the former duo to resurrect their most famous routine for a TV special on the history of comedy. High jinks ensue as the cantankerous coots try to work together despite their longtime feud.
The Sunshine Boys is directed by Karen Altree Piemme, Director of the Red Ladder Theatre Company at the San Jose Rep. The Los Altos Stage Company's production features Bus Barn Theater veterans, as well as a few new faces, including:
Bill C. Jones............Willie Clark
Rene Banks...........Registered Nurse
Performances are Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 8 pm and Sunday matinees at 3 pm.
Ticket prices range from $18 (student) to $32. Opening Night tickets, including a reception with the artists, are $34. Tickets are available on-line at www.losaltosstage.org or by calling the Box Office at (650) 941-0551.
