Great Bend Community Theatre wraps up its 2012-13 season this month with “Duck Hunter Shoots Angel,” opening Thursday. Curtain time is 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, April 21.
“Duck Hunter Shoots Angel” is the first full-length play by Mitch Albom, author of “Tuesdays with Morrie.”
It’s a comedy about two bumbling brothers who have never shot a duck but think they’ve shot an angel. As they try to figure out what to do next, they are chased by a cynical tabloid journalist and a sidekick photographer, reluctantly trying to get the scoop.
This allegory about redemption interweaves love, sibling rivalry, tawdry media and stereotypes into a crescendo in an Alabama swamp. It is directed by Chris Curtright, assisted by Dyann Twitchell.
The cast features GBCT veterans K.B. Bell, Charlie Dixon, Jeff Gibson, John O’Connor and Doug Simmons, as well as four newcomers to the GBCT stage: Lynn Benefield, Kaylan Lagerman, C.T. Taylor and Claudia Wyatt.
The ticket office will be open to take orders Monday through Friday. Box office hours are noon to 1 p.m. and one hour before each performance.
Season tickets for 2013-14 are on sale for $25. It will be a season filled with laughter as GBCT presents three adult comedies.
The new season will feature “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!)” in December; “Neighborhood Crime Watch” in February 2014; and “Becky’s New Car” in April 2014.
Season tickets at $25 provide a $5 savings and provides working capital for the theater.
