Unnecessary Farce, by Paul Slade Smith, is a hilarious farce in the vein of Lend Me A Tenor. Taking place in a cheap motel during a bumbling police sting, this funny show is a high paced chaotic whirlwind that will leave the audience breathless with laughter. It becomes especially chaotic when the bagpipe wielding hit man shows up with his increasingly unintelligible Scottish accent and no one knows where to go, what to do, or when to do it.

Here is the cast…

  • Eric Sheridan: Michael Gilch
  • Billie Dwyer: Maria Aromando
  • Karen Brown: Sarah Stryker
  • Mayor Meekly: John M. Maurer
  • Agent Frank: Matthew Cassidy
  • Mary Meekly: Stephanie A. Zimmerman
  • Todd: James Houston

The production staff includes…

  • Director: Peter Bisgaier
  • Producer: Judi Parrish
  • Assistant Director: Jonathan A. Martin
  • Stage Manager: Vicki Kaiser
  • Technical Director: Bryan Schendlinger
  • Lighting Designer: M. Kitty Getlik
  • Properties: Dottie Farina
