Laughter on the 23rd Floor
The Heritage Center, 635 North Delmorr Avenue, Morrisville
A brilliant comedy inspired by Neil Simon’s early career as a junior comedy writer, the play focuses on Sid Caesar-like Max Prince, and his wildly eccentric writing staff, circa 1953. Max Prince is the star of The Max Prince Show, a popular comedy-variety series that is a major hit on the East Coast, but network executive insists that it’s too sophisticated for the Midwest, and urges Prince to dumb down his act. Between the tensions of producing an hour of top-quality comedy each week and being pestered about his ratings, Prince is beginning to unravel. His last line of defense against both the network and the ratings are his writing staff, which spends its days coming up with business for the show while hurling humorous invective at each other and anyone else within earshot.
The Wizard of Oz
Town and Country Players, 4158 York Road, Buckingham
The Wizard of Oz tells the beloved tale of Dorothy and her friends and their magical trip to the Land of Oz. This is the heartwarming story that we all know and love. Dorothy is is transported to Oz and her adventures begin as she travels with her three new friends: Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion, who all have wishes of their own.
