On Friday, August 14 and Saturday, August 15 the Prosser-based Valley Theater Company will present a lively summer comedy as the first play, Mixed Nuts from 7:30 to 9:00 in the evening.
About Mixed Nuts
This is a story of a shy, aspiring writer from the Midwest who goes to the Big Apple in search of fame and fortune. Once he arrives, his life becomes a series of hilarious encounters with the unpredictable residents of his dilapidated apartment house.
Among this crazy group are the hero, Michael, played by Sawyer Schilperoort; his not-always-helpful alter ego, Mike, played by Joseph Charvet; Tanya, a Russian dancer, portrayed by Emily Lansing, who is on the run from the KGB, and aspiring TV commercial actor Marshall, played by Joshua Lansing.
Ann Glover, as Michael’s mother, provides advice and does not care for the fast-talking, out-of-work actress, Philomena Della Vecchia, played by Zoë Wilson, while Heather, a model played by Courtney Fredericks, bounces in and out of Michael’s apartment. They all live in the “Adolph Zuckerman Home for the Artistes,” run by Edna, played by Terri Worley.
(Note: This play has a different storyline and different characters than a 1994 movie of the same name.)
Performances will be in the Princess Theatre located at 1228 Meade Avenue in Prosser, the Green Room will open at 6:30, with local wines and microbrews available for purchase. Play tickets cost $12 for adults, $10 for seniors (65 and older) and students.
Tickets are now available at Adventures Underground in Richland, Patnode’s True Value in Benton City, Bonnie’s Vine & Gift in Prosser, Bleyhl Country Store in Grandview, Melange in Sunnyside and online here.
