Foolish Fishgirls and the Pearl
Two-act comedy at Liberty Theater offers performances on January 24, 25 & 26
January 9, 2020
Touchet Valley Arts Council and the Liberty Theater start 2020 off right with a fishy two-act live stage comedy Foolish Fish Girls and the Pearl directed by Bev Startin with performances on January 24, 25 and 26. The play is written by Barbara Pease Weber.
Stage veterans Deb Fortner and Kim Boggs return as former deep sea divas, Coral and Oceana, who didn’t exactly have the “happily ever after” storybook lives that the two erstwhile mermaids dreamed of when they rescued their handsome young sailors and swam ashore thirty years ago. Talk about unhappy endings! But they’ve discovered that a starry-eyed young mermaid (Audrey Bensel) has rescued a Coast Guard sailor (Mike Ferrians) who’s ended up in the drink, and now they have a chance to save her from making the same mistake! If, that is, they can navigate around local irritant Floyd “Pinky” Ferguson (Eric Sams) and the local constable, Sam (Fred Crowe), who is always busy trying to maintain order amidst the chaos of a brutal winter in the “off season.”
Filled with surprises, laughs and even a little rough-housing, Foolish Fish Girls is a welcome antidote to a world that takes itself too seriously! Performances are Friday, January 24 at 7pm; January 25 at 3 pm and 7 pm; and Sunday, January 26 at 3 pm. Tickets are $15-$20 and may be purchased at www.libertytheater.org. or call the theater at 509-382-1380 for more information and assistance. Box office hours are Tuesday and Friday, 2-5 pm.
