Anchorage Community Theatre
ACT's 2013 - 2014 Season

Anchorage Community Theatre is pleased to announce its 2013 - 2014 season of five great plays. We sell individual tickets as well as season tickets (see five shows for the price of 4) and punchcard/passes of either 4 or 8 tickets. See below for details.

 

star And Then There Were None

by Agatha Christie: September 20 - October 20, 2013

Directed by Kevin T. Bennett

produced by special arrangement with with Samuel French, Inc..

 

Ten guilty strangers are trapped on an island. One by one they are accused of murder; one by one they start to die. In this superlative mystery comedy statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten “soldiers” met his death until there were none. Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead - poisoned. One down and nine to go! The excitement never lets up.

star Charley's Aunt

By Brandon Thomas  January 24 - February 16, 2014

Directed by Linda Benson & Nate Benson

This play, first produced in 1892, is perhas the classical farce. Jack Chesney loves Kitty Verdun and Charley loves Miss Amy Spettigue. They invite the ladies to meet Charley's wealthy aunt from Brazil, "where the nuts come from". Cancelling her visit at the last minute, the millionaire aunt sends the boys into cataclysmic confusion. What do they do now? The problem is solved by drafting their feckless Oxford undergrad pal into a black satin skirt, bloomers and wig. As "Charley's Aunt", this charming frump is introduced to the ladies, to Jack's father and to Stephen Spettigue, Amy's guardian. When the real aunt turns up, classic comic confusion ensues.

A Thousand Clowns

by Herb Gardner    March 7 - 30, 2014

Directed by David Flavin

produced by special arrangement withSamuel French, Inc..

 

This benchmark of Broadway comedy produced one of the theatre's most beloved roles: unconventional Murray, uncle to precocious nephew, Nick. Tired of writing cheap comedy gags for "Chipper the Chipmunk", a children's television star, Murray finds himself unemployed with plenty of free time with which to pursue his...pursuits. Lectured by his conventional brother Arnold and hounded by "the system", Murray is paid a visit by bickering, uptight social workers, Sandra and Albert, and finds himself solving their problems as well as most of his own.

 

"Would be a standout comedy in any season. Filled with laughter and warmth and sweetness and inspired daffiness. One of the quintessential New York comedies." - New York Daily News

"An extraordinarily funny play with some brilliantly offbeat lines." - The New York Post

The Fox on the Fairway

by Ken Ludwig    April 25 - May 18, 2014

Directed by Carl Bright

produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc..

 

A tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) to the great English farces of yesteryear (including Charley's Aunt), The Fox On the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with... golf.

 

The Fox on the Fairway is phenomenally funny!” - New Jersey Star Ledger

 

“Three words best describe The Fox on the Fairway… Hilarious, hilarious, and hilarious. The audience was howling with joy.” - The Examiner
