“Academia Nuts” By Gregg Kreutz; Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Professor Peter Smedforson lives in a quiet New England college town, in the former home of poet E.R. Lennox whose writings are the subject of his scholarly life’s work. Reclusive Peter finds his sedate life is suddenly turned upside down when his home is invaded by Tammi, a free spirit from Atlantic City whose luck has run out, Judith, another Lennox scholar determined to unearth a lost manuscript in his home, and by Stewart, Judith’s reprehensible ex-husband who is trying to beat her to the manuscript. The discovery of said manuscript and the revelation of its surprising secret provide a hilarious climax to this urbane and quick witted comedy by the author of the popular farce Bottoms Up!

Upcoming Auditions

          Will be auditioning Friday  June 2, 2017 at 6:30 pm and Saturday June 3 at 2:00 pm for our 2017-2018 first production of “Academia Nuts” by Gregg Kreutz and directed by Harry Schafer. Auditions held at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 639 Elm Street, Cheney, WA.

Professor Peter Smedforson lives in a quiet New England college town, in the former home of poet E.R. Lennox whose writings are the subject of his scholarly life’s work. Reclusive Peter finds his sedate life is suddenly turned upside down when he is invaded by Tammi, a free spirit from Atlantic City whose luck has run out, by Judith, another Lennox scholar determined to unearth a lost manuscript in his home, and by Stuart, Judith’s reprehensible ex-husband who is trying to beat her to the manuscript. Peter is confronted with house breakers, mistaken identities, hide and seek chases and unexpected romance. Laughter abounds as  chaos is created by the manuscript hunting rivals. The discovery of the manuscript and the revelation of its surprising secret provide a hilarious climax to this urbane and quick witted comedy by the author of the popular farce Bottoms Up!
