The hilarious comedy “Old Ringers” opens Friday, Feb. 21 for two weekends of fun at Playmakers Civic Theatre, 604 W. Sixth St., Port Clinton, and it isn’t for the faint of heart. It is an adult-themed production, written by Joe Simonelli, about some older folks who find a bawdy way to financially help them to make a few much-needed bucks.
“Old Ringers” will have performances on Feb. 21-23, and on Feb. 28-29 and March 1. Curtain time for Fridays and Saturdays is 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15, $13 for seniors and students.
Call 419-734-5044 for reservations.
The play is all about the legendary post, “For a good time, call ….”
Diane, played by Linda McCleary, has her retirement income cut. She enlists the aid of friends Verna (Peggy McConnell), Kathy Ann (Margaret Helloing), Rose (Linda Rastle) and boyfriend Harry (Harry Stenzel) to find a way to make some extra money.
A wrong number phone call becomes their inspiration for a telephone endeavor that is a bit raunchy, and must be kept under wraps. Especially from Diane’s bible-toting daughter, Amanda (Kristen Stewart).
Add to the mix local police officer Tony (Justin Williams), who becomes enamored of Amanda. Not surprisingly, chaos ensues!
“Old Ringers” is co-directed by Jeff Bugbee and Susan Doell. Tickets are also available at Lilly &Gert’s in Port Clinton and at the Playmakers’ Box Office.
