Continuing a longstanding tradition, Town Players of Newtown is pleased to announce the opening of another fast-paced British farce, Tom, Dick And Harry on Saturday, September 14, at The Little Theatre.
(The show is opening on a Saturday due to the observance of Yom Kippur on Friday, September 13.)
In this hilarious tale of three brothers, Tom Kerwood (being played by Nick Kaye of Bethel) and his wife Linda (Angela Bowman, of Carmel, N.Y.) are preparing to adopt a baby. Naturally, they are anxious to impress Mrs Potter from the adoption agency (Barbara Disraeli, Brewster) who is due to inspect their home and lifestyle to confirm that they will make suitable parents.
Unfortunately for the couple, Tom’s brothers Dick (Christopher Cooney of Monroe) and Harry (Fairfield resident Bob Filipowich) complicate matters with Dick’s stash of contraband liquor and cigarettes and Harry’s bag of body parts littering the home. Add to that a gaggle of political refugees and Tom and Linda’s dreams of parenthood threaten to come crashing down around them.
The talented cast is rounded out by Kiersten Henry (Brewster), Daniel J. Mulvihill, Jr (Bethel), Stephen Ross (New Milford) and Tom Torpey (Stratford).
Written by the masters of British farce Ray Cooney and his son Michael, Tom, Dick And Harry is guided for the Newtown production by Director Gene Golaszewski of Brookfield. In addition to Mr Golaszewski, the production crew includes producers Lynn Alexander (Southbury) and Tracy Nashel (Newtown), stage manager Christine Mitchell (Southbury), lighting designer Nick Kaye and set designer/builder Timothy Huebenthal (Southbury).
Performances will run September 14 to October 5. Curtain times are 8 pm Fridays and Saturdays, with 2 pm matinees on Sundays, September 15, 22 and 29.
Tickets are $20 for evening shows, $15 for matinee performances. Friday, September 20 is a benefit performance; call the theater for details about those tickets.
