The Bellevue Little Theatre will present the third of its five productions for the 2015-2016 season beginning Feb. 12.
Having dispensed with “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” and “To Kill a Mockingbird,” directors and producers will now turn their attention to James Elward’s “Best of Friends,” a romantic comedy that highlights the dilemma of a famed author and philanderer who is caught between the attractions of a pretty young woman and the loyalty of a good wife.
The play has several comedic twists and complications that exhume family skeletons and birth unexpected romance.
The play will be presented Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m. Feb. 12 to Feb. 28.
Reservations may be made by calling 402-291-1554 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors, and $10 for students with proper identification.
Featured actors are Marcus Benzel as Merril Connaught; Amanda Overfield as Lib Connaught; Catharine DeLuca as Kate Connaught; Janet Macklin as Josie Connaught; Alexander Hamilton as Felix Heckaday; Brian Witcher as Archer Connaught; Angela Fick as Daryl Stoddard; Melissa Jarecke as Hazel Dunn; and Tom Steffes as Mr. Bledoe.
The play is directed by Emma Rasmussen with Pam Matney producer and sound designer. Melinda Schwart is stage manager, Joey Lorincz is set designer and builder, Wayne Matney is lighting designer and technician, and Tim Barr is sound technician. Leah Skorupa-Mezger is costumer.
