Level Ground Arts presents Hellzapoppin

WORLD PREMIERE

One weekend only! February 24th-February 26th , 2012



A circus atmosphere sets the mood in this comedy hodgepodge full of sight gags and slapstick. It's like Rowan and Martin's Laugh In, only more dated. There will be trained animals and dancing girls with a smorgasbord of explode-the-fourth-wall-nuttiness. A contemporary physical comedy romp for the whole family. It's like Cirque du Soleil for the 99 percent.

This show is part of the Level Ground Arts Classic Series



Directed by Dick and Tiffany Monday

American Century Theatre Presents STAGE DOOR, 4/13
by BWW News Desk - Mar 14, 2011

Dynamic writing duo Edna Ferber (the author of Show Boat) and George S. Kaufman (coauthor of The Man Who Came to Dinner, You Can't Take It with You, and other hit comedies) brought high comedy and laughter to American audiences in the 1930s with their witty, stylish hits Stage Door, The Royal Family, and Dinner at Eight. Stage Door was a huge Broadway success in 1936 at the Music Box Theatre (staged by Kaufman) and was made into a star-studded Hollywood movie featuring a young Katherine Hepburn. The play, however, is rarely done in modern times because of the large cast.
