The Sunshine Boys

Recurring event see all

April 30, 2022 @ 8:00 pm 10:00 pm

The Hoogland Center for the Arts is pleased to present Neil Simon’s comedy The Sunshine Boys on April 28 through May 1.Al and Willie as “Lewis and Clark” were top-billed vaudevillians for over forty years. Now they aren’t even speaking. When CBS requests them for a “History of Comedy” retrospective, a grudging reunion brings the two back together, along with a flood of memories, miseries, and laughs. The story follows the attempt by a young theatrical agent to re-unite his elderly uncle, a former vaudevillian great, with his long-time stage partner for a TV reunion. Despite their celebrated reputation, the two old men have not spoken in twelve years. Besides remastering their sketch, the two men have numerous issues to work out before they are ready to return to the public eye.

The Hoogland production will star Rich McCoy as Willie, Harvey Mack as Al, Johnny Molson as Ben, Laurie McCoy as Nurse O’Neill, Kate McDannald as Nurse Mackintosh, Jim Hepworth as Patient, Tom Ryder as Voice of TV Director, Max Corlas as Eddie.

The Sunshine Boys will be presented at The Hoogland Center for the Arts on Thursday, April 28 at 8pm, Friday, April 29 at 8pm, Saturday, April 30 at 8pm, and Sunday, May 1 at 4pm.Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for seniors (over 60) and students.
