The StageWest Community Theater will open Friday with its production of a 1995 comedy, “Academia Nuts,” by Gregg Kreutz.
“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 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,” according to a news release.
Performances will be 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 6; a special dinner theater show will be at 6 p.m. Oct. 7; and Sunday matinee performances will be at 3 p.m. through Oct. 8. All shows will be at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 639 Elm St., in Cheney.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 seniors, $5 students with current school ID and $30 for dinner theater. Dinner theater tickets must be purchased by Oct. 6.
For tickets contact Nancy at (509) 768-4792. For other information call Harry at (509) 660-0477.
The play is directed by Harry Schafer and produced with special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.
