Our Spring 2015 Production will be “Prelude to a Kiss,” a modern comedy by Craig Lucas.
Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
Director: Russell R. Greene
Synopsis of Play:
This acclaimed romantic comedy by Craig Lucas is an allegorical adult fairy tale with a twist. For Peter and Rita the course of their true love runs smoothly, one might even say magically, until a single kiss from an elderly uninvited wedding guest changes everything dramatically! From that moment forward a very confused Peter must figure out what happened and rescue the terrified Rita from some very dark and powerful magic. Will he succeed and will it be in time?
You may have seen the 1992 movie with Meg Ryan and Alec Baldwin. Come see the play that it was based on!
25-35. Our Hero and Narrator. Peter is an earnest intelligent urban professional who is not looking for love but meets his soulmate Rita and gets bulldozed by it.
25-35. Our Heroine. Rita an upfront graphic designer/bartender. She also wasn’t looking for love but gets changed, inside and out by what happens to her when she marries Peter.
65+. The inadvertent bad guy in our fairy tale. A man with a body that is breaking down, he has no idea that kissing the bride will give him another chance to be young again and he finds he is in no hurry to end this gender-bending do-over.
