Leading Ladies – City Park Players, Week 1
June 1 - June 4
Join City Park Players for Leading Ladies by Ken Ludwig. Leading Ladies will be performed Thursdays through Sundays from June 1st – 4th and 8th to 11th at the Hearn Stage at the Kress Theatre. Thursday through Saturday performances begin at 7:30 PM, and Sunday matinees begin at 2:30 PM.
Two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” 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 beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces!
Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister. Meg knows there’s a wide world out there, but it’s not until she meets “Maxine and Stephanie” that she finally gets a taste of it.
