WMSC’s “Prime Time Players” Gearing up for Evening of Comedy

by Rosabelle Tifft
 

WMSC’s "Prime Time Players" have been rehearsing weekly since mid-September preparing for their annual performance to be held on Friday, Nov. 20 and Saturday, Nov. 21, at 7 pm at Gould Academy’s McLaughlin Auditorium. Jack Kuchta, director, said the theme for the evening, “What Goes ‘round, Comes ‘round,” features four comedies. The plays show that people are complex and not always what they appear at first encounter.

Jack will be assisted by Lorrie Hoeh, who will be directing one of

the plays. She assisted Ross Timberlake during his two-year term as director. Lorrie will also perform a monologue entitled, “Kindness of Strangers,” by Jim Gordon. The play is an important reminder about two things that happen as we age. We are often seen as easy prey by scam artists, but we are just as often smarter than they are. Wait until you see how Lorrie handles this one!



“Drinks with Charles,” by Jim Gordon, features Tim LeConey as Charles Flemming, an investment guru. He envisions a profitable evening touting his “can’t fail” investment strategies to three unsuspecting women played by Roberta Taylor, Barbara Dion and Tineke Ouwinga. Unfortunately for Mr. Fleming, past success is no guarantee of the future.
