RCP's 2018 Fall Show Announced!
The River City Players open its Thirty-Sixth Anniversary Season with the comedy, "A BAD YEAR FOR TOMATOES " by John Patrick. Play dates are November 2-3, 2018 and November 9-10, 2018. The play will be held at the Lexington VFW located at 3109 Franklin Ave, Lexington, MO 64067. The production is directed by Sharon Propst.
THE STORY: Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marlowe leases a house in the tiny New England hamlet of Beaver Haven and settles down to write her autobiography. She is successful in turning aside the offers pressed on her by her long-time agent, but dealing with her nosy, omnipresent neighbors is a different matter. In an attempt to shoo them away, and gain some privacy, Myra invents a mad, homicidal sister—who is kept locked in an upstairs room, but who occasionally escapes long enough to scare off uninvited visitors. The ruse works well, at first, but complications result when the local handyman develops an affection for "Sister Sadie" (really Myra in a fright wig) and some of the more officious ladies decide it is their Christian duty to save the poor demented Sadie's soul. In desperation Myra announces that her imaginary sibling has suddenly gone off to Boston—which brings on the sheriff and the suspicion of murder! Needless to say, the uproarious doings will keep audiences laughing right up to the final curtain, and then some.
A hilarious success dealing with the very funny misfortunes of a famous television actress who seeks to "get away from it all" in a small New England town.
The cast includes: Cindy Sause as Myra; Shawn Frank as Tom; Rex Simmons as Piney; Sharon Propst as Willa Mae; Misti Mckenzie as Reba Harper; Robyn Bunting as Cora Gump; and Patricia Dunn as the Sheriff.
