Description

Mrs. Stancliffe’ Rose Cottage B & B is a huge success, where mature female guests return year after year. Her neighbor—elderly Bud Davis—mistakenly believes the ladies come for romantic liaisons with him, while the other neighbor—a retired chemist—has developed a blue pill called Venusia to increase the libido of menopausal women. When the guests exchange Bud's Viagra with Venusia, they discover it has a strange effect on men, giving them all the symptoms of menopausal women, complete with hot flashes, mood swings, weeping and irritability!

Description

The Futrelle Sisters—Frankie, Honey Raye and Twink—are throwing a wedding for Frankie’s daughter Tina Jo. The mother-of-the-bride has almost made herself sick with elaborate preparations and the rumor mill in their small Texas town is working overtime, but Frankie steadfastly holds the hope that she can pull off one “final Futrelle occasion” with elegance and style.  Despite the help of a cantankerous wedding coordinator the proceedings go hysterically off course. The sisters ultimately pull together to find ways to keep the unsuspecting guests in the pews while a highway patrolman races to track down the runaway bride and groom.

Scapin

Run Dates

October 4-14, 2018

Description

In 1968 Richmond Hill Players’ first production was a comedy by the 17th century French playwright Moliere. For our 50th Anniversary Season we return with another work by the same author -“Scapin” (rhymes with “Japan”), adapted and updated for our times. In this wildly physical farce, two hapless young men fall head-over-heels for two beautiful-but-penniless young women. Since their wealthy fathers disapprove, the boys turn for assistance to Scapin, a crafty, quick-talking servant who can scheme his way into (and out of) any situation, leading to wily ruses, mistaken identities, absurd disguises, and slapstick humor. Part-circus, part-vaudeville, always hilarious, “Scapin” is a madcap theatrical romp for the whole family.

November 8-18, 2018

Description

Family patriarch Albert Soady reunites with his two sons, Reuben and Remnar, at their Michigan Upper Peninsula family deer camp, joined by their zany friend, Jimmer (who has never been quite the same since being abducted by a UFO) for a spell of bagging bucks, playing cards, and drinking sweet sap whiskey. Thirty-five-year-old Reuben holds the infamous reputation as the oldest Soady in history never to bag a buck (earning the nickname of “Da Buckless Yooper”). This hunting-story-to-beat-all-hunting-stories spins a tale of humor, horror, and heart as Reuben goes to any and all lengths to remove himself from the wrong end of the family record book.
