Desert Foothills Theater Presents... Play On! (Adult Comedy) Directed by, Sandi Carll

Play On! is the hilarious story of a theatre group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance, in which anything that can go wrong, does. When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax and a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter.

Play On! Written by Rick Abbot. Performed with rights obtained by Concord Theatricals. A Samuel French, Inc. title. 

Location: Cactus Shadows Fine Arts Center - 33606 N 60th St, Scottsdale, AZ 85266
