RCT Presents "Four Old Broads" Oct. 8-12

Four Old Broads CastFour Old Broads may wrap up the Russell Community Theater 2019 season, but it also kicks off a countdown to celebration.

RCT's first production, God's Favorite, was presented in 1986. With three productions in the planning stages for 2020, RCT will be celebrating its 100th production next fall.

RCT volunteer Crystal Craig is seated in the director's chair for this fall's production. The cast of seven includes Teressa Roe, Sheryl Krug and Debora Kreutzer, all veteran RCT actors and volunteers. Becky Anschutz and Nikki Kuntzsch are returning to the RCT stage, while Georganna McCrary and Rob Williams are making their RCT debut.

In Four Old Broads, retired burlesque queen Beatrice (Teressa Roe) needs a vacation from Magnolia Place Assisted Living. A Sassy Seniors Cruise sounds perfect if she can convince her best friend, Eaddy Mae (Becky Anschutz), to join her.

Other residents are facing their own issues – including Imogene (Sheryl Krug) and her memory loss, Maude (Georganna McCrary) and her soap opera obsession, and Sam (Rob Williams) and his never ending search for love. And things just haven't been the same since Nurse Pat (Debora Kreutzer) began working there. Hopefully, Ruby Sue (Nikki Kuntzsch) can get her nose out of her book long enough to lend a hand.

Adventures unfold as the gals try to outsmart the evil Nurse Pat and solve a multitude of mysteries. Hilarity ensues as they try to throw Nurse Pat off their trail and make it to the cruise ship after all.

Performances run Tuesday through Saturday, October 8 through 12 at the RCT Playhouse at 5th and Kansas in Russell. Showtime is 8 PM. Admission is $12 or by season ticket.

Four Old Broads is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
