Russell Community Theater opens its 2018 season with Cheating Cheaters April 17-21, 2018.
RCT volunteer, Bob Roe, steps into the director chair once again and is working with one of two John Patrick scripts to be produced this season. His cast includes RCT veterans Crystal Craig and Randyll Smith and three actors new to the RCT stage, Justin Ashlaw, Megan Koetkemeyer and Sandy Ochampaugh.
In Cheating Cheaters, Theresa and Angelica have been impersonating nuns and begging for donations in order to send their orphaned niece to art school. A cat burglar plans to steal their ill-gotten gains, and a suspicious policeman arrives to investigate the sisters. What might be the beginning of big trouble turns out to be the beginning of big opportunities.
When the young art student turns up unannounced, the sisters decide to clean up their act. But before the adventure is over, the aunts realize their niece is not quite as innocent as she seems – and they’ll all reap the rewards of her secret talents!
Performances run Tuesday through Saturday, April 17-21 at the RCT Playhouse (5th and Kansas, Russell). Show time is 8:00 pm. Admission is $12 or by season ticket. Cheating Cheaters is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
