LLT closes season with ribald comedy

Topping off a very successful 47th season, Lakeside Little Theatre (LLT) opens its sixth show of 2011-2012 on April 7 with the wildly funny and mildly naughty comedy “Sex Please, We’re Sixty,” written by Michael and Susan Parker and directed by Pat Carroll, assisted by Sally Jo Bartlett.

Mrs. Stancliffe, a widow in her 60s (played by Roseann Wilshere), runs a bed and breakfast. Her slightly older next-door neighbor nicknamed “Bud the Stud” (played by Ray Himmelman) loves to woo any likely female guest of the establishment. Mrs. Stancliffe continues to be courted by a retired chemist, Henry (played by Zane Pumiglia) who has invented a blue pill that he hopes will help sexually stimulate women in their post-menopausal years. Mrs. Stancliffe and her lady guests decide to turn the tables on the men (with their own little pills?) The plot thickens and the fun begins.

Other members of the cast include Georgette Richmond, Betty Lloyd Robinson and Candace Luciano.

LLT’s Opening Night is Special program sees the cast join opening night theatergoers after the show for a complimentary glass of wine and theater talk on the Angel Terrace. Friday nights will continue to be dress rehearsal night and not be open to the public.
