OUR SUMMER COMEDY
JUNE 28, 29 JULY 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 19, 20
Our summer show tradition continues with an all out laugh fest.
A smartly written comedy that is a cross between I Love Lucy and Some Like It Hot!
Jon Trachtman and Leslie Arthur are two guys who are out of work musicians and roommates in
New York City. To save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as a married, without
telling his buddy. The day of reckoning comes when the Internal Revenue Service informs
the "couple" they're going to be investigated. Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon's
fiancee, Kate. Complicating matters further Leslie and Kate are having an affair behind Jon's back,
Jon's mother drops in unexpectedly to meet her son's fiancee, and Leslie's ex girlfriend shows up
demanding to know why Leslie has changed and won't see her anymore.
OUR 2013 FALL COMEDY CLASSIC
OPENING IN SEPTEMBER
An American Classic returns to the stage in the Bay Area!
Directed by: JoAnna Evans
Starring: Amy McElroy, Lance LaShelle, Christine Wait, Dale Haluza, Sandra Aranda and Kevin Heath
Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He's a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer
and she's a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. Their new apartment is her most recent
find-too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job. After a six day honeymoon, they get
a surprise visit from Corie's loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their
neighbor-in-the-attic Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. Paul just doesn't understand
Corie, as she sees it. He's too staid, too boring and she just wants him to be a little more spontaneous,
running "barefoot in the park" would be a start...
THE HOLIDAY FUNDRAISER FOR PARKINSON'S RESEARCH
OPENS IN NOVEMBER
THE BOYS FROM TUNA ARE BACK WITH
THE FOLLOW UP TO "A TUNA CHRISTMAS"
Our 2012 Holiday Show, 'A Tuna Christmas' left some unanswered questions.
It's several years later and the annual Tuna High School Fourth of July Reunion is about to take place.
What happened to R.R.?
Will Vera Carp retain her crown as Queen? Will anyone survive Helen and Inita's new catering company?
Will Bertha and Arles get together? Did Stanley find his way in New Mexico? Did Helen and Inita get new jobs?
Is Didi ready to start dating? Is there a wedding in the works? Who is pregnant?
These questions and more will be answered with "Red, White & TUNA".
Reprising their hysterical roles
(and creating some new ones)
Bill Tindall and Kevin Heath return as the lovable, quirky residents of Tuna, Texas.
It'll be summer at the holidays at Limelight, as we return to Tuna for another laughter filled visit!
Already in the works!
On a cold night in January 2011, we launched our theater with this outstanding comedy.
We didn't even have a stage yet. It only played for one weekend, so most of our patrons
have not seen this show. Instead of waiting for our 5th season to bring it back, we decided
to "twist it up" and launch our 4th season with it. Reprising their roles will be Rosalind Farotte
and Jayson Stebbins. Come prepared to laugh out loud at the dysfunctional relationship
between Mother and Son.
(As of Jan 15, 2013)
Our April Comedy Cabaret is one of the Nunsense spin offs. This one woman, tour de force show,
stars the incomparable Ruth E. Stein, (recently seen in "The Cemetery Club" at Limelight
and "Hedda Gabbler" at City Lights in San Jose) as Sister Robert Anne. Joining her on stage will be "Father" Bob Sunshine.The show will have the audiences tapping their feet and grabbing their sides as they laugh.
But don't chew gum in front of the Sister and watch out for that ruler!
