Area Community Theatre Presents:
"Sex, Please, We're 60!"
This hilarious performance center's around Mrs. Stancliffe’s Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast, a business that been successful for many years. Her Guests (nearly all women) return year after year. Her next door neighbor, “Bud the Stud” Davis believes they come to spend time with him in romantic liaisons. The prim and proper Mrs. Stancliffe reluctantly accepts the fact that “Bud the Stud” is, in fact, good for business. Bud gets his hands on some Venusia pills and the fun begins as he attempts to entertain all three women! The women mix up Bud’s Viagra pills with the Venusia, and we soon discover that it has a strange effect on men: it gives them all the symptoms of menopausal women, complete with hot flashes, mood swings, weeping and irritability!
Showtimes and dates:
May 4-5-6-7 and May 11-12-13-14
Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30pm. Sunday performances begin at 2pm.
