Thebes Players and Lowell Area Arts Council present "Sing On!"

There is something universally appealing about comedy on stage – whether it is watching the odd personality quirks vividly portrayed in the works of Neil Simon or the rapid-fire delivery of live improvisation. Audiences love to laugh, especially at the antics of inept characters. In Sing On!, A Comedy about a Musical, a troupe of inexperienced thespians take desperate measures to save their theatre.

The sequel to the farcical Play-On! presented by Thebes Players in 2010, the group of amateur actors are back, joined by Phyllis’s song-writing nephew Monte. When dire circumstances threaten their theatre, the gang is forced to do yet another show by Phyllis.  Sing On! is the hilarious spectacle of a harried theatrical troupe, facing disaster with a song, while rather off-key, in their hearts.

The cast includes several cast members from the Thebes Players Play On! They include Ken Parrish (actor in many West Michigan community theatre productions), Diana Roush, Gary Brook, Courtney Kerry and Sue Bradford (actor and director in many productions).  Other performers are Laurie Kuna, Terry Snuffer, Sue Veenema, Kelsey Ohle, Casey Berg and the play’s director Matt Tawney. 

The play will be performed at Larkin’s Other Place, 301 W. Main Street, Lowell, MI 49331, March 18, 19, 25, and 26, with dinner at 6:30 p.m. and the show at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday matinee performance March 20 with dinner at 1:30 p.m. and the show at 2:30 p.m. Guests may enjoy either a dinner theatre experience or purchase a ticket for the performance only.
