1920s high-society London is once again thrown into chaos by hapless playboy Bertie Wooster, this time in cahoots with his old school chum Eustace Bassington-Bassington. The two hatch a brilliant plan to dupe their meddling relatives in order to save Bertie from an undesired marriage and Eustace from an unwanted job in India. But will the ever-faithful manservant Jeeves be able to rescue these bumbling fools from themselves? A delightful romp full of deception and disguise. This faithful reproduction of the original P.G. Wodehouse stories about Bertie Wooster and his manservant, Jeeves, will appeal both to lovers of the original stories and to newer devotees of “Downton Abbey.”

Playwrights: V. Cate and Duke Ernsberger

This hilarious show is based on actual events from the spring of 1939 when the movie public is anxiously awaiting the release of Gone with the Wind. Filming has already begun, but David O. Selznick realizes the script is a dud. He calls on screenwriter Ben Hecht to save the day but, unfortunately, Hecht never read the book. With only a week before filming resumes, Selznick locks himself in his office with Hecht and Director Victor Fleming to re-write the script.

ALLERGY WARNING: Please note that there will be many peanut shells strewn about the set throughout the production.

In British Tradition by Philip Ventrella, proper English lady Edna St. Claire (Una Harrison) tries to teach traditional etiquette to down home Texas gal Bobbi Jo Alexander (Laura Bukalski).  Two different worlds? Oh, yeah. And then some!

In Consecrated Grounds by Janet Chenoweth, two couples happen into a coffee shop as they prepare for a Civil War reenactment.  New Yorkers Johnny and Beverly (Steve Przybytek and Una Harrison) comically cross verbal swords with Southerners Jasper and Donna (Joe Lomonoco and Laura Bukalski).

In An Infinite Number of Monkeys with Typewriters by Philip Ventrella, monkeys Steve Przybytek and Joe Lomonoco are typity-type-type-typing away when they fall into a discussion of the meaning of life and end up with Shakespeare's plays.  And you thought that old saying was just a myth.

Performances at CAT Theatre:

  • Tuesday, April 5, 8:00 pm
  • Friday, April 8, 2:30 pm
George and Charlotte Hay have had a not-so-illustrious stage career. Now in Buffalo touring in Cyrano de Bergerac and Private Lives, they may have one more shot at stardom as Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee. But, much like their careers, everything that can go wrong does in this hysterical comedy.
