The Georgeville Troupe presents An Evening of Culture
ers. Mineola busybody Mildred Carson (Sarah Hoblyn), who is not a day younger than 50 and dimwitted Bubba Bedford (Alan Kezber) are cast as the title characters.
Naomi Farkle Carson ( Karina Chadwick), owner of the Bee-luvLee Beauty Salon, insists on contributing some new dialogue, while begrudgingly agreeing to portray Juliet’s mother. Faye Mcfaye (Mary Hill), the flirtatious checker from the local A&P, brings her own unique style to the role as the nurse.
Ruthann Barns (Valerie Pasztor), wife of the local preacher and president of the Mineola Council for Cultural Recognition, fills the roles of a servant and the friar. Luther Carson (Edward Kezber), owner of Luther’s Lube ’N Tune, plays Benvolio and local pig farmer Delbert Fink (Arthur Kilkelly) is the set-builder for the show.
Meanwhile, Violet Farkle (Helga Loverseed), the only person in Mineola with any sense, is attempting to direct the production, only to discover on opening night that the actors don’t know their lines, the set isn’t finished and nobody seems to be able to silence a dog that keeps barking offstage.
This is “Bill” Shakespeare as he never meant it to be (or not to be...)!
Surplus after expenses goes to the Community Association of Georgeville.
