The Windsor Jesters Proudly Present "Funny Money"

Event Date/Time

Oct 11, 2013 to Oct 19, 2013
8:00 pm

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

The Windsor Jesters Proudly Present

The play is being performed in the comfortably appointed theater at the L.P. Wilson Community Center, 599 Matianuck Avenue, Windsor, CT 06095.  Show dates are October 11, 12, 18 and 19.  Curtain is at 8:00 PM all days, and there will also be a 1:00 PM matinee on October 12.  Prepaid tickets are $16, general admission, and $13 for students and senior citizens.  Tickets purchased at the door cost $18, general admission, and $16 for students and seniors.  For tickets or information: www.windsorjesters.org or www.facebook.com/windsorjesters windsorjesters@gmail.com.  

The show is directed by Chris Bushey, with Helen Aveline of Glastonbury as Stage Manager.  The exceptionally talented cast includes Lorrie Bacon as Jean Perkins, Nate Strick as Henry Perkins, Summer Echelson of Enfield as Betty Johnson and Eric Michaelian also of Enfield as Vic Johnson.  Troy Walcott as Bill the taxi driver, Bill Mullen as Detective Sgt. Davenport, Bruce Showalter as Det. Sgt. Slater and Ed Lewis of Bolton as The Passerby respectively make up the rest of this spectacular cast.

The Windsor Jesters are Connecticut’s oldest continuously performing community theater group.  For the Fall production of their 63rd season they proudly present, “Funny Money” a hilarious British farce by Ray Cooney, one of England most well-known comedic playwrights.  It premièred at The Churchill Theatre, London in 1994, followed by a successful two-year run in the West End. Cooney directed his own play and also played the part of Henry Perkins. In 2006 the play was adapted into a movie starring Chevy Chase.

Perennial nerd Henry Perkins finds that someone has switched his briefcase on the train.  Instead of containing the remains of his lunch, it contains 3.25 million pounds in used notes.  Henry decides not to look a gift horse in the mouth and goes home to grab his wife and fly away forever.  Unfortunately, his wife Jean has other plans for the evening.  Specifically, their best friends, Vic and Betty Johnson, are coming to dinner to celebrate Henry's birthday, something they do every year and Jean isn't going to stop now.  While Henry is trying to get Jean out the door, two different police detectives, on two very different missions, arrive, as well as the Johnsons and a taxi driver Henry has called to bring them to the airport.  Watching Henry spin his web of lies trying to get everyone out of the house, including him and Jean, is more fun than a barrel of monkeys.  And, just wait until Mr. Big shows up looking for his briefcase. Your stomach will hurt from laughing!!!
