A rich, moody, eccentric woman is the lead character in “Maid to Order,” a fast-paced play set to open today at Corbin High School’s Redhound Theater.
The farce, penned by Matthew K. Begbie, is the first performance of the season for the school’s theater group, according to Schann Mobley, director.
While the one-act play is long on laughs, it’s short in duration with the performance taking about an hour.
During that time, Mobley promises theater-goers will enjoy the action that takes place as the lead character frantically tries to prepare for a date while barking orders at the servants and cooing lovingly at her son. Circumstances become complicated when her brother arrives unexpectedly, needing to hide from a loan shark who — of course — turns out to be the man with whom she has a date.
“It’s a lot of fun,” Mobley said of the play, which is set in the 1920s and features the sort of fun associated with mistaken identities, confusion and action.
Performances are at 7 p.m. tonight (Thursday) through Saturday with adult tickets costing $8 and student tickets costing $5.
Mobley’s actors will perform three plays this season and season tickets are available. The second play, “The Matchgirl’s Gift,” will run Dec. 6-8. Over two weekends in April, the musical “Little Shop of Horrors” will be performed.
Adult season passes are $25 and senior passes are $20. Each of these passes entitles the bearer to view one performance of each of the three plays. Student season passes cost $15 and students are allowed to view each play as many times as desired.
