EXIT LAUGHING
Written by Paul Elliott
Directed by Michael J. Frohnhoefer

February 1, 2, 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 2019

When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night with the “girls,” what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies? If you’re Connie, Leona and Millie, three southern ladies from Birmingham, you do the most daring thing you’ve ever done. You “borrow” the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest, most exciting night of your lives involves a police raid, a stripper and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you’re truly living. Winner of the AACT NewPlayFest 2014.

Directed by Kit Colbourn

Performances: March 2 at 8pm & March 3 at 2pm

Auditions: Sunday, January 13,  2019 (2pm – 5pm)

The second production in our new CP2 Reader’s Theatre program. It’s 2006, people are still dealing with the physical and emotional fallout from 9/11. The “Yankee Tavern” is an old neighborhood joint in lower Manhattan, a place that was hopping in the forties, now doling out its final shots before the crash of the wrecking ball. Adam is the proprietor, his buddy Ray the barkeep. The occasional quiet stranger drops in, but they generally have the place to themselves. The jukebox died on September 11, 2001 at 8:46 am, when the first plane hit the World Trade Center… Ray’s reflexive conspiracy theories drive the conversation, but take on an air of legitimacy as the play unfolds.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
8-10 rehearsals.

Character breakdown:
Adam – a graduate student, late 20s

Ray – a resident of the bar, and Adam’s eccentric best friend
Palmer – a man, forties

Together We Can Tell Great Stories! Thank you for your support!

Theatre plays an indispensable role.

It offers the opportunity to come together, to laugh, to think, to create conversation, and to recognize ourselves in the stories of others. Great theatre and great storytelling are necessary to us as human beings — as important as oxygen. It reminds us we are a community. 

For more than sixty years, County Players has provided experiences that entertain, inspire, empower and captivate. Our mission is to inspire a lifelong engagement with the performing arts and the theatre. We aspire to keep theatre alive for present and future audiences, and create memorable moments for each member of our community. 

We cannot do this on ticket sales alone.

Only 60% of our total cost is covered by subscriptions and single ticket purchases. The rest is made possible by contributions from loyal supporters, like you, who are passionate about the value of County Players.

Your generosity provides the foundation on which we stand, dream and create. Thanks for your support.
