“Present Laughter” by Noel Coward, presented by the Merlin Players
July 30, 31, August 5, 6, 7 at 7:30PM, August 1 at 2:00PM. $17 adults, $10 18 & under.
Featuring an all-star cast of Michael Lambert, Kim Schaufenbuel, Susan Dunhaupt, Patrick Braucher, Larry Tolle, Stephanie Weiss, Dean Lamp, Faith Jameson, Sam Temple, Marcia Morris-Beck, and Tania Legvold.
Talk about a match made in heaven. Michael Lambert and this cast were born to do Noel Coward. “In a vehicle he wrote for himself, Coward was poking mischievous fun at the frothy commercial comedies that were his bread and butter, with their sophisticated repartee, winking sexual shenanigans, luxurious settings, silk dressing gowns and free-flowing cocktails.”
Unpacked here over four scenes in two acts covering roughly 10 days, the play charts the escalating chaos Garry whips up around himself as he prepares to leave London to tour Africa with six plays in repertory. Juggling his commitments and keeping his more reckless impulses in check is his long-suffering secretary Monica. But despite the efforts of Monica and estranged wife Liz, whose condescending indulgence toward Garry can't hide her enduring affection, he gets drawn into the messy intrigues of his inner circle.

Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance.

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
