The Broken Arrow Community Playhouse is proud to present Play On! By Rick Abbot for two big weekends! August 5, 6, 12 & 13, 2022 at 7:30 PM and Sunday Matinees on August 7 & 14, 2022 at 2:00 PM at the Playhouse located at 1800 S. Main Street in Broken Arrow.

Play On! - One plucky community theatre is about to produce a show called Murder Most Foul, a new “murder mystery play” with the same title as an Agatha Christie novel but with no relation whatsoever. The director/theatre manager, Gerry, thought producing the play was a good idea since the inexperienced playwright has agreed to let the company perform the show for no charge. Gerry valiantly attempts to get the production ready for opening night. However, with opening night a mere four days away, the author decides to re-write the play, changing the actors’ lines and, worse still, adding a new character. The cast is having problems enough learning the original script, let alone learning any new lines and suddenly having to incorporate a new character. Even with the help of the stage manager and the sound and lighting technician, it seems as though the production is doomed! Anyone who has been involved in rehearsing a play will identify very strongly with the maxim “If anything can go wrong – it will.” When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax and a thoroughly hilarious romp. Play On! is a hilarious love letter to community theatre. So if you are up for an evening of light-hearted merriment, we hope you will come join us in the fun!

We are pleased to welcome back director Stephanie Alecia Rose to the BACP. Stephanie has directed several successful productions for the BACP including Send Me No Flowers, Honeymoon at Graveside Manor, and War of the Worlds: The Panic Broadcast in 2019. She has assembled a dynamite cast of characters that we know will have you rolling in the aisles with laughter. The cast includes Ashe Buffington, Alyssa Burrow, Samara Cain, Gerald Carter, Amanda Ewton, Bob Knutson, Dom Laguan, Carol Palmour, Ruth Seefeldt and Stephanie Zongker.

More information for this production can be obtained by calling the BACP at 918-258-0077. The BACP is located in The Main Place at 1800 S. Main in downtown Broken Arrow. “Play On!” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com. This production is made possible in part by grants from the Oklahoma Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. The BACP would like to thank Standley Systems for being a sponsor for our 2022-2023 season. The Broken Arrow Community Playhouse is a member of the Oklahoma Community Theatre Association and the American Association of Community Theatre.
