CocaCola-6-web.jpgOn March 2, 2018, Lakewood Theatre Company brings to the stage the Portland area premiere of the legendary, classic comedy with music, El Grande de Coca-Cola from the authors of Bullshot Crummond and Footlight Frenzy (Ron House, Diz White, Alan Shearman and John Neville-Andrews).


Performances begin March 2, 2018 and continue through April 8, 2018, playing Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 7:30 PM, with two Wednesday performances (Mar. 28 & April 4) at 7:30 PM, Sunday evenings at 7:00 PM (Mar. 4, 18, 25), and Sunday matinees at 2:00 PM (Mar. 11, 18, 25 and Apr. 8). The show’s title sponsor is Drs. Bill & Ricky Korach.

Scenario: In a nightclub somewhere even further south than south of the border, impresario Señor Pepe Hernandez boasts in the local press that he is bringing a group of famous international cabaret stars to his club to entertain the busloads of American tourists. He persuades the local Coca-Cola bottling plant to back the show in exchange for some blatant product placement. When the night of the show comes, however, no stars arrive to perform and Pepe is forced to hire his family, whose antics wreak havoc upon the stage. It’s show time for this deliriously funny and ridiculously wild extravaganza!

The cast stars: Andrew Harris, Franny Kromminga, Sam Schultz, Heather Ovalle and Erik Furuheim.

The creative team includes stage and musical direction by Alan Shearman, scenic design by John Gerth, lighting design by Kurt Herman, costume design by Grace O’Malley, original choreography by Tor Campbell, additional choreography by Laura Hiszczynskyj, sound design by Marcus Storey, and properties by Jennifer Summering. The stage manager is Addie Underwood and the producer is Steve Knox.
