Little Theatre Production Super Freaks Opens Friday, March 13

Funny, Witty Play Runs for Three Weekends

Lake Wales Little Theatre is proud to announce its upcoming production of Super Freaks, which opens Friday, March 13 for a three-weekend run. The theater is taking extra precautions to deep clean the lobby and sanitize the chair armrests before and after each performance.

Come out and support the arts at this little 140-seat community theater. This show has a great cast of new and returning actors as well as a new director to the LWLT stage. Super Freaks is hilarious, witty and full of surprises.

Synopsis of the Play: Lois Lancaster is a big-city journalist writing about the current state of mental health facilities. Her research takes her to a hospital populated with a unique group of quirky inmates who imagine they are crime-fighting superheroes. Speed Freak thinks he can run at incredible speeds, while Dim Bulb, the most enthusiastic person on the face of the earth, thinks he has the ability to turn off lights with his brain. Mental thinks she can read minds, despite being prone to sudden outbursts of bizarre non-sequiturs. Kevin, much less quirky and flamboyant than the other inmates, does not embarrass himself with a ridiculous code name or least, not initially. Dr. Gail Eisner appears to be a kindly hospital administrator, a steady influence needed to effectively run a madhouse like this one. At first, Lois finds their elaborate superhero fantasies to be an entertaining diversion, the wild delusions of unstable minds, until something unusual happens that makes her.

The play, written by Scott Hann, is produced by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing Company. The play is directed by Lesta Woods, who is new to LWLT.

The cast includes Rhoda Buetler as Dr. Gail Eisner, Maddison Glockner as Lois, David Foskey as Dim Bulb, Denise Higginbotham as Mental, Ian Elliott as Keven and Toni Pendleton as Speed Freak.

Show times are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays through March 29. Tickets are $18 for adults and $12 for students under age 18. Select seats and purchase tickets online at Tickets also can be purchased at the theatre box office from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays or by calling 863-676-1266.
