Opening night this Friday, April 29, will be extra-special as Playmakers Civic Theatre (PCT) hosts Fremont Community Theatre’s production of “Kalamazoo” by Michelle Khotos and Kelly Younger. “Kalamazoo” was so well-received in Fremont when it was presented in January that the PCT Board of Directors asked the cast to “travel” to Port Clinton.
“Kalamazoo” is a romantic comedy about life’s second act — and learning that you’re never too old to be young. Irv (Ron Hill) and Peg (Peggy McConnell), two quirky but endearing baby boomers, bravely venture into the quixotic world of modern dating.
But when these opposites attract, they discover love isn’t any easier the second time around. The comedy is rated PG-13 for adult language and mild sexual content.
Don’t miss Ron and Peggy, two accomplished, award-winning actors in their master class performances in heartfelt, comedic acting. “Kalamazoo” has been directed by Mary Jo Foos, also an experienced actress and singer who you might remember as Truvy in the PCT production of “Steel Magnolias.”
Foos has been assisted by Sarah Stamm, and Delilah, PJ and Cyrus Foos. Tasked with transferring the “Kalamazoo” set to PCT are Karen Dagus, Samantha Meyer, Dennis Gordon and Dave Blankenbeker.
“Kalamazoo” can be seen at Playmakers Civic Theatre, 604 W. Sixth St., Port Clinton, on Friday and Saturday, April 29-30, at 8 p.m., followed by a Sunday matinees on May 1, at 2 p.m.
