Olympia Little Theatre Presents "Laughing Stock":
A funny and genuinely affectionate look at the magic that lies at the heart of the theatrical world. When "The Playhouse," a rustic New England summer theatre, schedules a repertory season of Dracula, Hamlet and Charley's Aunt, predictably, confusion ensues. Follow the well-intentioned, but over-matched company from outrageous auditions to ego-driven rehearsals through opening nights gone disastrously awry, to the elation of a great play well-told and the comic and nostalgic final night of the season. March 27-April 19, 2015
Friday, March 27-Sunday, April 19 (Thu.-Sat. 7:55pm, Sun. 1:55pm)
