All the confusion creates a delightful comedy, in which tax advantages donít always translate to love.

by Ken Ludwig, directed by Penny Elaine
Farce


November 7-23
One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong?

Itís an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, bedroom hijinks, and madcap delight.
