The St. Mary's High School Performing Arts Department will present Billy St. John's Is There a Comic in the House? as this year's fall play. The play will be presented Friday, Nov. 4, and Saturday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m. both nights in the St. Mary's Auditorium, 142 Laverack Ave., in Lancaster.
Seven wildly funny comedians live in Shotzie Starr's boarding house. The only "normal" resident is Shotzie's granddaughter whose pizza delivering boyfriend is an aspiring comedian. The action at Shotzie's becomes manic when bumbling kidnappers crash their van and take refuge there with their victim, a haughty socialite, in tow. Police surround the house and the unrestrainable comics are suddenly in the proximity of reporters' TV cameras. All hilarity breaks loose, on stage and in the audience.
Tickets for either night's performance of Is There a Comic in the House? cost $5. They are available at the school or by calling 683-4824.
