About Leading Ladies

Hilarity takes center stage for Theatrikos Theatre’s production of the crowd-pleasing farce, Leading Ladies. The show runs May 27 through June 12 at the Doris Harper-White Community Playhouse in historic downtown Flagstaff.

Written by Tony Award-winning playwright Ken Ludwig and directed by Viola award-winning Theatrikos veteran Becky Daggett, Leading Ladies is a side-splitting comedy set in the 1950s about two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, who find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, Penn., is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister. Meg knows that there’s a wide world out there, but it’s not until she meets “Maxine and Stephanie” that she finally gets a taste of it.

The cast of eight includes Aaron Paul as Leo Clark; Phillip Baker as Jack Gable; Niki DeShazo as Meg Snider; Zoe Smith as Audrey; Kelly Gibbs as Florence Snider, Joe Maniglia as Doc Myers; Stephen Root as the Rev. Duncan Wooley; and Kalmar Robertsson as Butch. Two understudies round out the cast: John Winikka and Tom Marcinko. John LaBarbara is Assistant Director.

Our gratitude and thanks goes out to Becky Daggett and Theatrikos Theatre Company for this generous opportunity!
