Now that we’re winding down the chaotic year of 2020, settling in for winter break, and spending time with family, how should we spend our holidays? If you want to (carefully, while practicing social distancing measures) get out of the house, BCS’s own venerable community theatre StageCenter is putting on a production of Michael McKeever’s farcical play “Suite Surrender” from December 3 – December 19.
“Suite Surrender” is a comedy about two rival stage divas in wartime 1942, whose feud spills over into the lives of other comic characters. According to the description from StageCenter’s website, “mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and one pampered little lap dog round out this fall-down-laughing riot of a comedy.” If you’re interested in a throwback farce that mimics the old black-and-white slapstick comedies from the 1940s, this one might be just for you! Playing every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for its three week run, tickets for “Suite Surrender” are $10-$15, which you can purchase here.
StageCenter has been a B/CS mainstay for over fifty years and has weathered multiple moves throughout the decades in order to pursue their passion for bringing theatrical entertainment to the community. They’re taking every precaution, so all groups will be seated six feet apart and the number of seats available has been cut in half. Wear your favorite mask and come out to support the local arts and laugh along to “Suite Surrender.”
