"Unnecessary Farce" a comedy, kicks off the summer at Lakewood Theatre Company


It's summer and time for comedy! "Unnecessary Farce" opens at Lakewood Theatre Company July 11

Lakewood Theatre Company presents the Portland area premiere of
Unnecessary Farce

July 10 - August 16, 2015, Directed by Michael Snider. Order Tickets online.


It’s the perfect setup for a laugh-filled evening at the theatre. A bumbling mayor, his female accountant who can’t stay dressed, two undercover cops, an infamous Scottish hitman, and, of course, videotape.

To crack a case of suspected embezzlement, the officers must overcome their fear of the dark, guns, enclosed spaces, and the opposite sex. In this sidesplitting escapade, playwright Paul Slade Smith has reinvented the in-one-door innuendo and out-the-door comic shtick in a zany Portland area premiere that will leave you laughing.

Lakewood's production of Unnecessary Farce, directed by Michael Snider, opens Friday, July 10 and continues until August 16 with the following performance schedule: Thursdays - Saturdays at 7:30 PM; Sundays at 7:00 PM (July 12, 19 and 26); Sunday matinees at 2:00 PM (July 19, August 2, 9 and 16); and Wednesdays (July 22, Aug 5) at 7:30 PM.
