LARNED — Three productions down, one to go.
The cast of Larned High School’s spring play recently met to have the read-through for their final performance of the year, “Down in Front,” scheduled for Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15.
A final practice will be performed for the elementary and middle school students April 13 at the Larned Community Center.
“Down in Front” is a fast-paced farce, a bit reminiscent of the hysterical “Noises Off,” sponsors said.
The play features a cast of zany characters, such as a nervous playwright, his fiancé, two gossipy patrons, several panicking ushers, a thief and a soon-to-arrive fire marshal for a “surprise” inspection. It’s opening night at the charming old Harlequin theater, but the entertainment isn’t on stage — it’s all happening in the lobby.
The mystery develops when it is discovered that someone is sabotaging the theater before the Fire Marshall arrives. Who would be trying to get the old theater shut down?
Join the cast for a hilarious night and find out who is out to shut down the show.
The list of possible suspects is as long as the laughs in this hilarious farce that goes to show you that all the drama isn’t on stage. A lot of it happens “Down in Front!”
