LEADING LADIES Opens at Diamond Head Theatre Tonight
Diamond Head Theatre (DHT) presents the hilarious comedy, Leading Ladies!
Directing and playing the lead roles of the two English Shakespearean actors, "Jack" and "Leo", are theatre veterans, Rob Duval and Paul Mitri. Tricia Marciel plays the optimistic and vivacious "Meg" and Leiney Rigg is the sweet, but sometimes ditzy "Audrey."
Leading Ladies is a hilarious comedy about two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, who find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing on the Moose Lodge Circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long-lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her relatives, and get the cash. The trouble is when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces. A Some Like It Hot farce ensues.
Leading Ladies will be playing from tonight, February 1 - 17, 2013. Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday - Saturday, 4 p.m. Sunday, and Saturday matinees at 3 p.m. on February 9 and 16. Call 733-0274 to charge by phone or purchase tickets online at www.diamondheadtheatre.com.
