“Play On!” is a Laugh Riot at the Tater Patch Theater!

Play On at Tatter Patch Players

“Play On” Runs one More Week at the Tater Patch Theater in Jasper

 

After church and a nice lunch on Father’s Day,  we polished off the afternoon by laughing ourselves silly at the Tater Patch Players production of “Play On!”  If  you don’t have a sense of humor, or your doctor has warned you not to belly laugh, chortle or stifle an urge to run up on stage and participate,  then by all means stay at home.   However, if none of those of three conditions apply, then grab 5 or 6 of your closest friends and head on down to the Tater Patch Theater next Friday & Saturday night!  (95 Philadelphia Lane – up behind Walmart.)  Shows start at 7:30 pm both nights and tickets are available in advance  at www.TaterPatchPlayers.org  or at the stage door – if you’re feeling lucky!

“Play On!” is a play within a play and if you have ever been in even one high school, college, community, or even professional production,  you will wonder whether or not the author was there with you looking over your shoulder.  If you haven’t had the pleasure yet, then you will get a particularly insightful view of how the theater works and how even the most serious subject can set off howls of laughter if you have the wrong vision in your mind or the wrong words on your tongue.  “Play On!”  cleverly written, artifully directed by Alex Nawrocki and playfully presented by a cast of thoroughly delightful local “professionals.”   Special Note to the cast:  I knwo from experience that learning lines once in a single context is a challenge – learning them right, wrong and muddled in several scenes over 3 acts in an incredible accomplsihment! Great Job!

So in summary: five weeks out of surgery, I laughed til my stitches hurt – and it was worth it!

So plan ahead – make dinner reservations locally for Friday or Saturday, have a drink or too and then work it off with laughter – you’ll love it!

See you ’round the mountains,

Don
