Lucky find brings many laughs

It's not every day a middle-aged accountant accidentally switches briefcases with a mobster and ends up with £750,000 on his birthday...Read full preview article at Gainesville.com

This is a wickedly funny, fast-paced British farce that will leave you rolling in the aisles. Mistaken identities, briefcases full of money, even a bit of wife-swapping thrown in for good measure... well, you'll just have to see it :) I caught the final dress rehearsal last night, and I can solemnly swear that this is show-ready and ldy-approved!

Sneak preview tonight: $5 at the door.

Opens tomorrow, runs Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8p, Sundays at 2p, through 30 May.

Tickets are $16, available in advance at The Book Gallery West in Millhopper Shopping Center (352-371-1234, open Mon - Sat 9 am - 9 pm., Sunday 11 am - 6 pm) or at the door the night of the performance (credit cards now accepted at the playhouse!); $10 rush student tickets beginning 30 minutes before showtime.

Info: 376-4949 or www.gcplayhouse.org

Also upcoming...

at the Gainesville Community Playhouse at the Vam York Theater; 4039 NW 16th Blvd

When two Broadway producers discover the key to riches is to produce a flop, they decide to mount the worst musical ever written. Follow their hilarious struggles to gather the very worst in Broadway artistry. This Broadway and screen success is full of outrageous, in-your-face humor and crazy show-stopping numbers. Winning a record twelve Tony® Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night, you won't want to miss this one!

Folks, this is going to be THE show of the season. Lavish sets and costumes, an amazing crew (this is being directed by Erin Kleim, who directed Peter Pan last summer), wonderful source material and a large cast... it's going to be a whole lotta fun :)
