Plans are under way for the next On Stage production at the Theatre on the Green. Auditions will be lined up for the first week in August, and the play will be presented Oct. 9-12.
Mike Hunter will be directing the play by Jack Sharkey titled “Take a Number, Darling.”
It is described as a comedy in three acts. Since concert pianist Duncan Latimer and wife, Ellen, famous soap opera star, lead impeccable lives, their P.R. lady has no qualms over having a reporter from a scandal magazine interview them. But just before he arrives, so does Duncan’s old Navy buddy and Ellen’s former lover from her literally messy past and so does an extra wife Duncan forgot to tell anyone about.
The play calls for three women and three men. Committed volunteers are also needed for help with other aspects of the theater such as lighting, sound, stage hands, prompting, publicity, ticket sales and more.
The On Stage community theater group has been presenting plays since the mid-1980s. On Stage President Sherri Leviner encourages those with or without theater experience to get involved.
According to Lerner Voice Newspapers, “Take a Number, Darling,” is said to be “A work of imagination, enthusiasm and happiness [that]… continues Sharkey’s tradition of clean, funny plays.”
